Politico’s Libby Nelson, in yesterday’s “Morning Education” email (and in a tweet on Black Friday) reports that the U.S. Department of Education “has scheduled its third session of negotiated rule-making on the ‘gainful employment’ rule for Dec. 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Education Department’s 1990 K St. offices, according to an email sent to negotiators Friday.”  This is also the last day of the next NACIQI meeting (the Department’s advisory committee on accreditation).  In case you are curious, 1990 K Street is no where near 415 New Jersey Ave. NW. (where the NACIQI sessions will be held).

As you may recall from our past reporting, one of the purposes of this session is to review data on the anticipated effect of the proposed rules.  It will be interesting to see how these various rules shake out and if there are a number of programs that would pass the debt metrics proposed in September, but would fail the new measures proposed by the Department before the last session.

UPDATE (8:23 PM): The Federal Register has the pre-publication notice for the new session.  Nothing else of note in the notice.
