Higher education has never been less affordable, but a new report from Generation Progress highlights how states and local governments can stop the negative consequences of student loan debt from affecting their communities.
The report outlines a number of policy options for state and local leaders to mitigate the effects of student debt, and offers some solutions to address cost and accountability for institutions and lenders.
Our communities can’t afford to wait for federal solutions to the student loan debt crisis when almost one million Minnesotans have student debt.
That’s why we’ve launched a petition calling on state leaders to take action this year to pass real reforms so that student loan borrowers can achieve their dreams and better prepare for the future without the burden of student loan debt.
Student loan borrowers need to stop getting by and start getting ahead so we have a chance to live and thrive without being crushed by student debt.
