We Want to Hear from You: New and Improved Feedback Platform Now Online

The U.S. Department of Education has created a “one stop shop” to make it easier for you to give us feedback.

Our Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review webpage is now online. This resource offers all of the information you will need to submit comments on current and proposed regulations, which could go a long way to help reduce regulatory burdens and generate results that are efficient and easier to understand.

When you visit the page, you will find a link to all Education regulations open for public comment via regulations.gov, a link to all existing Education rules via the electronic Code of Federal Regulations (e-CFR), and a link to the easy-to-use form for submitting comments on existing regulations.  All links are conveniently found in the same location as the Department’s plan for retrospective analysis, status reports, and contact information.

ED recognizes the importance of maintaining a consistent culture of retrospective review of regulations. We’re dedicated to streamlining and modifying ineffective and inefficient regulations, while ensuring our rules are concise and minimize burden to the greatest extent possible.

Above all else, we’re committed to implementing regulations that support states, local communities and schools, institutions of higher education, and others in improving education nationwide and in helping to ensure that all Americans receive a quality education.

We continue to seek greater and more useful public participation in our rulemaking activities and welcome your comments, ideas, and suggestions!
