We need to provide support to borrowers currently paying off the existing $1.2 trillion of debt. The country must address the causes of declining affordability and quality, including changes to state funding and financial aid policies. People need to be educated about Wall Street’s complicity in the creation of the $1.2 Trillion student debt crisis. Most importantly, civic engagement across all geographic, demographic and political lines is what will make the difference. Student debt is too high, and I won't stand for sitting back and doing nothing about it. Now, more than ever, a college degree is the ticket required for entry into the middle class. Unfortunately, the skyrocketing cost of this ticket is risking our nation’s future as a middle‐class nation.
