The government will give money to large companies and rich people , but not students and poor people.
Congress can increase their salaries as often as they feel yet they have so much problem to raise the minimum wage although no one can live on it.Education should be free so that every one could have the same chance in life.

I understand that in this time of monetary greed, that the universities are paying exorbitant salaries to the higher level of university staff. Let's go back to the days when universities were there to educate by the sure grit of the educators.

If you know a student, have a student or will be a student, or just care about your country, you should sign this petition.

Thanks ever so much for the email. Unfortunately as an Australian who is unemployed (and on what Americans would call "food stamps" and we call the dole) I feel unable to donate money. And may I say that I also have a student debt to the government. I do not exactly understand what the American situation is all about... but in the Australian situation I support the existence of a government student loan scheme in the name of education and in the name of economic development and in the...

And may I say that I also have a student debt to the government. I do not exactly understand what the American situation is all about... but in the Australian situation I support the existence of a government student loan scheme in the name of education and in the name of economic development and in the name of general prosperity. Having read about inherited debt in India and having talked briefly with Indian students at university, I am concerned about right wing propertarians who believe in families and family responsibilities rather than individual responsibility. I support getting rid of unwanted relics of caste law there and everywhere else too! Therefore I support a charity of forced waiver during estate settlement...

A country that refuses to educate its citizens cannot expect a high form of citizenship. Please support this worthy cause. I really believe in this. Student loans have become a predatory scam. Students who take out loans should have the same rights as everyone else. It is a ridiculous, flawed argument to think that all students will default on their loans just because they have the right to file bankruptcy.

Tuition is raping college students, and compound interest is the nail in the coffin! Many countries offer free education to all students and they do not have the tremendous debt we do. I was going to get my doctorate degree when I fist planned my education, but by the time I got to that level, the cost of education had gone up so much there is no way to afford it. My dream was shattered. Add to that all of the compound interest, which I did not understand for a while, and the cost of my...

Tuition is raping college students, and compound interest is the nail in the coffin! Many countries offer free education to all students and they do not have the tremendous debt we do.

My dream was shattered. Add to that all of the compound interest, which I did not understand for a while, and the cost of my loans have almost tripled what they were originally. Who is making the profits? It is destroying our country from the inside out. We need strong, educated individuals for a strong country, but when greed gets so bad that we have the current situation, something seriously needs to change!

The loans are a scam indeed. But the universities themselves need to be straightened out also. They are getting as bad as insurance companies at cheating the people out of there money and giving nothing in return. Ever notice how they tell kids be sure to take some classes if it its not your area on interest...
