We've all heard how Mrs Clinton will solve the student debt problem. But what about Mr. Trump?

How does Mr. Trump plan on solving the student debt ( loan) problem?

@Miller,
He recognized it as a problem to be addressed in his acceptance speech last night. Perhaps, he didn't give details, since he didn't want to take up your time??

@Miller,
The ideal solution to student debt would be to pay it back. If you have the smarts to deserve a college education, you should also have the smarts to decide what can be paid before signing.

I thought they said higher education was the path to making more money. Did they mean by learning to beg for it?

@Leadfoot,
If you can borrow without repayment, that's more dignified than begging. You don't expect college grads to be undignified, do you?

Did you know that Mrs. Clinton is for zero tuition at State Universities? I wonder if she knows how Professors at those schools will react...

Most will quit and go on to another Profession. Can't blame them.

Free tuition only means the Colleges will be operating as advanced High Schools.

@Miller,
Allowing students to take on more debt has just resulted in tuition inflation.

The government guaranteeing the loans just means the lenders have no risk, and no incentive to make sure the loan can be repaid.

Basically, it's a great deal for the lenders and the universities, but a crappy deal for the students. Student's take on the loans, considering it "good debt" and under the belief that they can get out from under the debt if necessary. Then reality kicks in and they see that it will destroy their credit rating, and that the government will come after them if they default.

They're in that condition because it isn't necessarily true.

Trump has strongly supported student debt as a way to finance education, specifically at Trump U where students were encouraged to finance their courses.

There is that, I suppose.
