With the resources and easy accessibility of a post secondary education that we have today, it is common to see many high school graduates expand their knowledge and choose a career path through college. Unfortunately, the student debt crisis that we face right now is causing an exceedingly growing number of young generation students to turn their heads at furthering their education past high school. On average, Americans will spend over $26,000 per year on university level schooling. By the end of a four year general degree program, students of above average income families will need to pay off more then $40,000 in student loans. As of 2011, the student loan debt in America surpassed the nation’s credit card debit and continues to grow annually, leaving many young adults in life altering financial situations. In a day and age where education is so important, is it fair to expect students to make an investment that may help them succeed career wise, but leave them struggling to pay off debt for the rest of their life?
