Student Loan Debt & Cultural Attitudes

This article caught my attention since I was recently told by a coworker who graduated last year and only has eight months experience that he “shouldn’t have to do this, I have a degree.”  His frustration is understandable.

Students and recent graduates need to reevaluate the benefit of taking out so much money. Additionally, at the high school level staff need to seek alternatives to the decades long mantra of go to college get a good job.

Honesty about our educational and economic reality would greatly enhance our ability to find solutions.
