What do you think should be done to fix America's student loan crisis?


What do you think should be done first to try to alleviate this huge problem? Is anyone in particular to blame?

    You hit the nail on the head. Grants should be more prevalent, and loans should be far and few between. I like the idea of a minimum salary for payback.

    Benj, you pointed out something that I don't think many people realize! This is the information age - the internet is a knowledge haven! But, without education, would the internet be as powerful? As full of data?

    Good point - money has been easy to acquire. And its the loans, not grants and scholarships, that have been handed out like candy. High school graduates have NO IDEA what comes along with accepting loans.

    Excellent, Bill. While blame should not exactly be the top priority, it is important to go straight to the source of it. And you answered it by saying colleges need to reform - and if not, the government should regulate. And yes, service for seniors.

    Attiko, you make a good point about communicating what it takes to be "successful" in society. There needs to be more education on reality - not everyone needs to go to college. Trade schools need to be more utilized.
