HOW FAITH-BASED ENTITIES CAN ADDRESS THE CRISIS IN HIGHER EDUCATION FROM USDE! (708 hits)


For Immediate Release From USDE!

To address the crisis in higher education, faith-based entities can share that, in her remarks at the Department’s annual Federal Student Aid (FSA) Training Conference in Atlanta on Nov. 27, the Secretary warned America’s students and taxpayers of the rising student debt in America.  She called the nation’s higher education system “the envy of the world,” but declared, if significant policy changes are not made to the way student aid is distributed and administered, “the program on which so many students rely will be in serious jeopardy.”  Indeed, FSA holds nearly $1.5 trillion in outstanding federal loans (more than $10,000 for each and every American taxpayer); only 24% of borrowers are currently paying down both principal and interest; and 43% of all federal loans are considered “in distress” (press release and blog post: https://www.ed.gov/news/press-releases/us-secretary-education-betsy-devos-warns-looming-crisis-higher-education?
