This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!

Preach!

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR PEOPLE TO REALIZE THIS?!

SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES EITHER PAY FOR THEIR POPULATIONS’ EDUCATION OR JUST WRITE OFF THE BILL IF DOESN’T GET PAID FOR.

THE WAY THE AMERICAN EDUCATION SYSTEM WORKS IS BACKWARDS AND MANGLED.

The government wont even give students loans unless they can make a large amount of money off that particular student.

I have just three credits holding me back from working on a degree I’ve been studying for for nearly a decade, they refuse to give me a loan for those three credits because even though the course I need costs thousands upon thousands of dollars I don’t have, the loan I’d take out for three credits is “too small” for them to think it worth issuing the money for.

And reminder, I’m NOT asking for a grant or a handout of any kind, they won’t even let me borrow money that I’d be legally obligated to pay them back WITH INTEREST because the profit incentive isn’t high enough for them, and its fairly likely I’m not going to be going back to school this September and just flat out be stuck without a degree in spite of having done 99.9% of the work to earn it.

Oh, and that’s Elizabeth Warren by the way, if in case you don’t know.
