The House this week gave final congressional approval to legislation that links student loan interest rates to the financial markets. The bill would offer lower rates for most students now but higher rates down the line if the economy improves as expected. What does this bill mean for students and parents?

Join us Friday at 2 p.m. (ET) for a chat with Adrienne Lu, who covers education issues for Stateline, the news service of the Pew Charitable Trusts. She will take questions from readers on how students and parents will be affected by the latest federal moves on student loans if President Barack Obama signs the approved bill.
