I think the real problem is colleges and universities jacking up their tuition with little improvement in the education they offer. I am an adjunct lecturer at a private university. We get paid crap to teach all the foundational courses, we have no insurance or any bargaining rights, but still students are paying 20,000 to 40,000 a year to go to college. Who pockets all that extra money? The administration. I'm more concerned about how to bring down the overall cost of higher education,...

I'm more concerned about how to bring down the overall cost of higher education, especially since it seems that higher ed. degrees don't always lead to better jobs.

I have been paying my student loan ever since I have been underpaid for doing the job I was educated to do! And I still pay what I can and stay in touch with my loan service often. I'm not a deadbeat, but damn it, anyway, I often feel beat to the bones. Long story. That's okay; pity is the last thing I want from anyone. I'm too proud to accept pity and still able enough to take some care of myself to need mercy. Mercy? What it is anyway? Justice? Justice is good.

Gladly I will sign this petition. I have $75,000 on a $20,00 loan package. I don't answer their letters, have Caller ID and generally ignore their attempts to make me feel bad. NOT GONNA HAPPEN! If I do happen to answer the phone for one of their brainwashed robots, I tell the caller about Student Loan Justice.org. They are generally students that signed up for minimum wage at a phone bank and it gets their attention.

I would advise you to follow the link above, and click on the **_Read_this_first:______________.
* "Why College Prices Keep Rising" link, which will take you directly to Alan's op-ed, and, then, after that, read the editorial comments below -as well as my op-ed at the top of the page.

Then, and ONLY then, will you be prepared to write letters to the editor --or argue with your local state or federal lawmaker -or newspaper editor.

Students face too many other obstacles besides being saddled with a huge debt load from furthering their educations.Having to put up with the anxiety of facing possible bankruptcy shouldn't be added to their worries.

Thanks, Tom. I've signed and sent it to friends to sign as well! I am also interested in knowing about organizing efforts re debt forgiveness.
