Unfotunately, more and more people are deciding to not further their education today for the main reason that they cannot afford the tuition. The answer used to be student loans. But now it has been becoming increasingly harder to pay these loans off on a timely basis, while keeping up with interest charges and other bills. I am still paying off my orginal students loans I took out when I started college roughly 6 years ago. In that time, I had to quit school for 2 years in order to work so...

I am still paying off my orginal students loans I took out when I started college roughly 6 years ago. In that time, I had to quit school for 2 years in order to work so I could pay my bills. I now go to school full-time and work full-time so that I can complete my education and afford it at the same time. This is so hard to do and many are not as determined to stick with it. Since its such hard times, I have decided to not take on any more student loans for it just doesn't seem worth it in the end. My educational journey is slow going because of money issues and I am chipping away at the block, but loans just seem like a pit that sucks you in and spits you out worse for wear. We need some help here.

When the promise of an education goes unfulfilled because banks and ceo's and corporations have turned into plantation owners more intent on keeping labor enslaved... and bankruptcy is forbidden... then debt becomes the prison guard. Without the relief of bankruptcy... we have re-engaged indentured servitude and usury.

With unconscionable fee raises, bailouts, and home foreclosures, some had no choice if they wanted an education. Private loans interest rates are high. Maybe if the banks felt they could lose something, they would be better partners in America!

I saw that. I thought no one could top Bill Bennett, who pissed away $25 million, but she takes the cake, eats it, and gets 100 more.

You need to do something about the kids who are trying to better themselves instead of these girls who's having babies and receiving help for having no morals

I suggest you educate yourself: http://www.studentloanjustice.org/argument.htm . Spouting advice that everyone agrees with does nothing to solve our problem.

Circumstances beyond my control interfered with my ability to pay back my loans. Research the evidence before making ignorant judgments.

The bankruptcy law was rewritten by Bush, and the republicans in 2005 to benefit credit card companies, and other corporations, a company can declare bankruptcy, and void all union contracts etc, but a common person cannot write off a student loan.
