Education Department to Hold Public Hearings for Feedback on Rulemaking

 The department aims to refine potential policy focus for fall 2023.

The Department of Education announced an upcoming series of public hearings, hoping to receive input on what issues will be best to focus on in the next school year. The hearings will be held virtually on April 11, 12, and 13, opening preliminary discussions for what kinds of regulatory actions can be taken to improve federal policy for schools and students.

“The Department’s primary responsibility is to serve students and help them succeed,” said Education Secretary Miguel Cardona. “That means we must continue to take a look at a range of regulations to ensure that colleges and programs serve our students well and that Department processes work in their best interest.”

After the hearings, the Education Department will finalize the issues they will be focusing on, and will request nominations for individuals to serve in the new round of negotiated rulemaking committees.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That these virtual public hearings refine the Education Department’s focus this upcoming school year.
  • That members of the public step forward to give insightful input into this regulatory process.
  • For Secretary Cardona as he guides the American education system toward success.
