Saddest part to the ongoing college debt saga are dashed dreams hopes diminished because millennials carry a ton of student loan debt that limits millennials career options read the story here charts tell in graphic detail the downward grind of those considered to be millennials. Nothing wrong with student loan debt for a career in demand with high pay such as those in health care, STEM-Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics that will allow you to smoothly repay a student loan. Maybe the solution is public loan forgiveness in exchange for 10 years in teaching, health care or other public commitment such as teaching prison inmates literacy, remedial skills, job preparation to reduce recidivism or assisting the growing elderly population. I think to when I graduated from a state university with a measly $4,300 in student loans then completed my master’s degree with no student loans yet worked through college with no car or family living at home with my folks.
