Title:Paying back, not giving back: Student debt's negative influence on public service career opportunities
Source:http://www.uspirg.org/uploads/W1/cO/W1cOXhfgaBP...
Date:2006
Organization:U.S. PIRG Higher Education Project
Short Description:This report looks at the issue of unmanageable debt as it pertains to college graduates entering two critical public service careers: teaching and social work. Given increasing dependence on student loans, borrowers graduating from four-year schools and working in these two public service careers often carry more debt than they can manage.
Annotation:This report looks at the issue of unmanageable debt as it pertains to college graduates entering two critical public service careers: teaching and social work. Given increasing dependence on student loans, borrowers graduating from four-year schools and working in these two public service careers often carry more debt than they can manage. The prospect of burdensome debt likely deters skilled and dedicated college graduates from entering and staying in important careers educating our nation’s children and helping the country’s most vulnerable populations.
