Educational Justice.

The government’s meddling has encouraged the rise in tuition, through making more money available, through the encouragement of socially conscious course material, and through diversity initiatives enticing the marginally qualified into college.

You’d better open your wallet because they haven’t even begun to soak us yet. :)

College students held demonstrations in several U.S. cities on Wednesday to mark the day total U.S. student loan debt was expected to reach $1 trillion, with some burning student loan documents and others demanding a right to "debt-free degrees."

Protesting? They ought to be locked up for breach of contract for not paying their bills!

Since I paid for my own education, can Obama just send me a check for the subsidy I would have received?

>>Hadi Nassar, 31, whose eight years of undergraduate and dental school education has left him $186,000 in debt, said he was having to rethink his plan to work at a community health clinic.<<

I have a nephew who also has a ton of student debt — I asked him (no answer btw) the size of the gun the loan officer held to his head when he promised to pay back the loan he got.

When I went to school, I had a plan (it changed while I was there but nonetheless I still had a plan when I graduated). I paid back my student loans — what makes the :gimme” generation’s loans somehow sacrosanct?

Protest organizer Katie Zaman, a Wisconsin Ph.D. student in sociology with $111,000 in debt waiting for her when she graduates in three years, suggested the federal government forgive all student loan debt, especially after bailing out big banks that had lost huge sums because of risky investments.

"It's not going to be worth it. I might as well have not come to graduate school. I might as well be working at Starbucks right now," said the 35-year-old single mother, who has two graduate degrees.

35 years old, 3 years from graduating with a sociology degree, and $111k in debt. There is a slow learner.

Hadi Nassar, 31, whose eight years of undergraduate and dental school education has left him $186,000 in debt, said he was having to rethink his plan to work at a community health clinic.

"It makes me angry. It makes me not want to do what I set out to do - which was, help people, take care of people," said Nassar


Gosh, I guess he just didn't see it coming over a period of eight years.

These fools borrow $30,000 a year for 5 years to get a degree in Humanities that isn’t worth the paper it is printed on and then they want to be relieved of the obligations for their stupid decisions.

If you are going to go into debt to get a degree, then choose engineering or medicine.

If you are going to get a degree in Humanities or Liberal Arts or some other stupid degree, then go to a junior college and then a state college and pay for it yourself. Then when you decide you want a career, you can go to work in the McDonald’s management program or Taco Bell and you won’t have a $2500 a month obligation that you are never going to meet.

Talking about helping the 1%. Rich kids borrowing money to allow them to earn big bucks. He just doesn't want to pay back the money.

You’d think they’d try to get the government to sue “Big Education” for collusion and RICO violations. But that requires common sense, something not in abundance on college campuses.
