A Simple Solution on Student Loans

Aaron Broadus, Inside Higher Ed, Jul 06, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I commented on this (ridiculous) article thus: "This is nothing more than an affirmation of the status quo, where the wealthy can afford to attend exclusive colleges for the future rulers of society, while the rest of us must be content with our lot in the boiler room. The _fact_ that people borrow so much demonstrates the inherent unacceptability of such a situation. Telling people to borrow less will not make the injustice go away." More and more, Inside Higher ed seems to me to be a front for a certain (toxic) line of thought and logic that undermines the idea of public and popular education.
