It's insane that we are one of the only countries in the world that does NOT prioritize education. It shouldn't matter if you're working on a master's degree, professional certificate or PhD, you should be able to get a federally funded student loan. Students shouldn't have to worry about going bankrupt while trying to get an education. Our allies in Europe understand that investing in education (including college and post-graduate education) positively influences the economy. Maybe we should follow suit.
