Weekly Roundup

We'll try to put together a weekly roundup of what's going on in the wonderful world of education debt. This is an evolving feature, so stay tuned.

  • US News & World Report says the Democrats' plan to ease Student debt burdens will be darn costly -- to the tune of $18-60 billion over five years.

  • James Pethokoukis thinks students should attract venture capitalists to fund their education, then pledge a percentage of their future income. Even a secondary market for trading these agreements could emerge.

  • Christian Science Monitor laments the mixed messages of the rising cost of education with diminishing value. Should education be free for all?

  • And our friend, Harvard Professor Elizabeth Warren finds that a middle class income far from ensures a middle class life. If only we didn't insist on safe neighborhoods with good schools, we wouldn't have to spend so much darn money.
