More than 8 million borrowers have defaulted on their student loans. For millions more, the financial burden of those loans has altered lives, relationships, even retirements. Here’s a look at how people are coping with their debt.
Just about everyone involved in the student loan industry these days – banks, private investors and even the federal government – makes money off the borrowers. On this episode of Reveal, we explore how this happened and who’s profiting from student debt.
We wanted to inspire a creative way to highlight all that debt – and to build a conversation that puts it out in the open. Which is why we’re launching a new social media campaign today to hear about your experience.
