Join C-SPAN for a discussion about the issue of student loan debt and college costs. We speak with education reporters and hear from those directly affected by the issues.
Tonight's topics include the federal government’s role in setting loan rates and guaranteeing loans, including actions by Congress and the Education Department.
We then talk about whether education debt might be the next “bubble” that could affect the economy. Our guests also detail the effects of college education on employment.
Other topics include the for-profit colleges as compared to non-profit colleges. Guests and viewers also discuss how both organizations handle student loans and other related payment options.
Guests include Wall Street Journal's education reporter Josh Mitchell along with ProPublica's education reporter Marian Wang.
