Student Debt Is Killing the Chances of America’s Youth
It has generally been agreed that going to college ensures students that they will get better-paying jobs that will more than make up for what their education cost them. However, these figures are being called into question as more and more college graduates find themselves saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in student debt and struggle to find full-time work related to their majors.
The average college student graduates more than $20,000 dollars in debt, and nine percent of these graduates are unable to find work after they have left school. Under these circumstances, some find themselves getting further into debt faster than they can dig themselves out of it, all the while getting more and more frustrated that the degree for which they sacrificed so much seems to have few practical applications.
Given the crisis that is facing so many students in America, more federal funding could go a long way toward reassuring high school graduates that they have a shot at a debt-free life after college.
