Education is a key factor in upward social mobility — it opens the door for better employment opportunities, and a better life. Unfortunately, due to high tuition costs, it seems like a college education is falling out of reach for many students in our country.
One saving grace is low interest student loans, but now that may be in jeopardy too. Congress — especially the Senate — is hopelessly deadlocked due to election year politics. As a result, the fate of Stafford loans, utilized by low and middle-income students, hangs in the balance.
If the Senate cannot reach a compromise by July 1st, attending college will become more difficult for millions of Americans.
Sign on and let others know that you believe America is at its strongest when people receive a good education. We need to prepare today’s youth for the jobs of tomorrow and a college education is one of the best ways to do that.
Sign our petition and tell Congress to keep interest rates on student loans low!
