A College Board report "Who Borrows Most?" includes this striking graphic on student loan loads.
The for-profits clearly take the description seriously. The article makes a pitch for financial literacy for students. I don't see that making much of a dent, though. I think what would make a difference is disqualifying for-profits from being eligible for government-backed loans and federal aid, like PELL grants. Why should tax dollars go to feed the bottom line of these companies?
