Dangerous New Normal in Student Debt

Many students can’t earn their way out of this trap--

A Dangerous ‘New Normal’ in College Debt - NYTimes.com: ". . . . The student debt crisis may become a dangerous “new normal,” according to a report this week by the nonprofit State Higher Education Executive Officers Association: “In the ‘new normal,’ retirement and health care costs simultaneously drive up the cost of higher education, and compete with education for limited public resources. The ‘new normal’ no longer expects to see a recovery of state support for higher education such as occurred repeatedly in the last half of the 20th century. The ‘new normal’ expects students and their families to continue to make increasingly greater financial sacrifices in order to complete a postsecondary education. The ‘new normal’ expects schools and colleges to find ways of increasing productivity and absorb ever-larger budget cuts, while increasing degree production without, we hope, compromising quality.”. . . Our national educational aspirations and the debt crisis that they’re creating are colliding. We are on an unsustainable track. This will not end well."
