What Are Some Solutions to Our Student Debt Crisis?

May 6, 2019

WDET – Detroit Today 


How do we deal with the $1.5 trillion Americans owe for their educations?

On Detroit Today, Stephen Henderson speaks with three people who think quite a bit about these questions.

Adam Harris is a staff writer at The Atlantic covering education. He has been covering Sen. Warren’s student debt forgiveness proposal.

Neal P. McCluskey is the director of the Center for Educational Freedom at the Cato Institute. He talks about why he thinks Sen. Warren’s plan is misguided.

Sandy Baruah is president and CEO of the Detroit Regional Chamber, which is leading a debt forgiveness program for students who return to school. Three local institutions of higher education are participating: Wayne State University, Oakland University, and Henry Ford College.
