In 2016, former students are being burdened by student loan debt stronger than ever before. It is time to make a change.
Former students are taking a stand and are refusing to pay off their student debt saying they feel scammed by their universities and government. After attending college, many are feeling as ill-equipped in life, and entering the world, as if they had not gone to college at all.
With over 40% of Americans, who borrowed from the government’s main student-loan program, not paying back their loans, are really gaining attention to start a movement for change.
“The singular goal of our student loan program is to help all students get a degree that sets them up for success, and we take the treatment of our borrowers—particularly historically underserved students—very seriously,” Dorie Nolt, a spokeswoman for Education Secretary John B. King Jr. said.
