The concept of free #college tuition deserves fairer consideration than it sometimes receives. http://blog.credit.com/2016/04/its-time-we-got-serious-about-solving-the-higher-education-problem-142562/ #studentdebt 
Campaigns are talking about higher education problems and it seems each politician has a potential solution. But who will these ideas really help?

Is it possible for the federal student loan program to be ethical but immoral at the same time?

The government should consider foregoing taxes on all students' forgiven loans, not just for Corinthian College students.

Does the Department of Education have the right people managing the #studentloan program? Maybe not: http://blog.credit.com/2016/03/the-wrong-people-are-managing-your-student-loan-debt-138746/
The Education Department might want to consider hiring private sector student loan experts to guard their henhouse.

Student loan borrowers have been dealt a lousy hand. Time to reshuffle the deck. http://blog.credit.com/2015/11/unstacking-the-deck-for-student-loan-borrowers-130321/ #college #studentloandebt 
Allowing debts to be discharged in bankruptcies and eliminating arbitration clauses would go a long way towards helping student loan borrowers.
