No, and transition all current government student loans into privately managed accounts

The problem is that the cost of colleges has increased so dramatically compared to average income. Regulations should be put in place to bring these closer together. I also think that providing money for early childhood education, arts programs in schools, and after school programs would better benefit society than putting that money towards paying for people to go to college.

Every time funding is increased the tuition goes up. How can other country's provide college and all we can provide is instant debt without any guarantees of being able to finish school?

Eliminate tenure, hold higher education accountable to performance and outcomes. Emphasis on critical thinking, not political indoctrination

US schools are run badly. By 10th grade you SHOULD be done with lower education. Grades 11-12 should be the first 2 years of college or trade school.
After that you can continue with college for full degree or jump into the work force in the trade you trained for.

Students should focus on attending colleges that are within their financial means; this may mean state colleges installed of private colleges

Too simple and ineffective, bust up big companies, government should have no role in student loans but should stop predatory lending and the notion that everyone should go to college

This is a problem that needs to be shared by Lenders of Student Loans and the Colleges that took the money. Everybody wants to blame the kids who do what they are told, and not the con men running this shell game. Make the Colleges and Lenders responsible. Why should the public tax fund pay off a slush fund created by unscrupulous practices of lenders and Universities??

I believe they should increase taxes for the rich, but they don't need to necessarily use it to reduce interest rates for student loans.

It really depends. This can out a lot of rich people into paying for taxes and start parties and gatherings to make a movement. There should be surveys on how much higher the taxes would really be.

@963H83D from North Carolina answered…1 day

Only increase taxes for the richest 10% and lower taxes on lower-mid income households

Someone else shouldnt pay for the persons tuition just because they have the money

@95KP6BNfrom Maine  answered…1 day

Yes, but only after higher education institutions are reformed, constituted and staffed in a politically balanced and neutral way, so that the curriculum and tuition are delivered for the purpose of education, cultural enrichment and preparing students for the future - rather than for the purpose of propagandising and indoctrination.

No, taxing corporations is far more effective and efficient than taxing individuals.

@962WSSG from Oklahoma answered…2 days

Yes, but I don't think this will solve the interest rate problem for students.

Yes, but mostly target the inheritence tax and it's loopholes, not the actual income as much.

Yes, but I think that that money can be used for more than one thing, not just student loans.

taxes on the rich do not need to be increased but loopholes should be closed so the rich actually pay the tax rates currently set

Rich people gain money from selling product or working with international groups. They did not take the money from poor people, and I think that the rich people are the one helping create the opportunity for the country.

@962F3SX from Arizona answered…2 days

No as this would just make the prices for good and serivce skyrocket and any money they would have used to pay off debt would just go towards food and rent
