"… let the position go unfilled …"

Lileks yesterday:

As for the Department of Education, I'd like to see an experiment: let the position go unfilled for four years and see if it has any impact on the educational abilities of the nation's youth. I'm guessing no one would notice if we didn't have a Secretary of Education. Everyone just keep on doing what you’re doing, and get back to us.

Same here. But teachers and schools here would definitely notice. Suddenly, the only initiatives and shake-ups would be their own.
