Will Student Loan Debt Be A Threat To U.S. Economy?

Will Student Loan Debt Be A Threat To U.S. Economy? | College Scholarship Search | Scoop.it
Student loan debt is now larger than credit card and auto loan debt, soaring above the $1 trillion mark.

 

"First there was the tech bubble, when Internet-related companies that were losing money were priced as if they had a cure for cancer. Then came the housing bubble, where values of homes were sliced in half after unrealistic run-ups. And just a few years ago, the subprime debt situation exploded. Can the next great bubble be the loans that helped many of us pay for college?"

 

{Well, duh! Yes. We tell all these kids to go get a degree so that they can get a job. But what happens when there is no jobs for those kids to get so that they can pay back those loans? You get kids asking for others to pay their debt. It's a toxic bubble}

Trends in College Pricing 2011 | The College Board

Trends in College Pricing 2011 | The College Board | College Scholarship Search | Scoop.it

This document is available in PDF, the raw data is available in .xls, and a presentation can also be downloaded. For the fifth year in a row, tuition increases at public schools outpaced those at the privates. Large tuition increases in California had a warping effect on national statistics.

 

"Trends in College Pricing provides information on changes over time in undergraduate tuition and fees, room and board, and other estimated expenses related to attending colleges and universities. The report, which includes data through 2011-12 from the College Board's Annual Survey of Colleges, reveals the wide variation in prices charged by institutions of different types and in different parts of the country. Of particular importance is the focus on the net prices students actually pay after taking grant aid into consideration. Because of the important role of grant aid, these net prices have not followed the same sharp upward path as the published prices. Data on institutional revenues and expenditures and on changing enrollment patterns over time supplement the data on prices to provide a clearer picture of the circumstances of students and the institutions in which they study."

My thoughts:

This article shows data saying that the price you must pay to attend colleges is drastically increasing. The price for public institutes, believe it or not, is increasing more rapidly than that of private schools. I believe that this means that our government is not provding enough money towards education. This also means that it will not only be a struggle finding a college, but also paying for it.

My Thoughts:

I think this is great for someone who might not know how to start looking for scholarships as well as informing about fake ones that just want your information. A lot of people including myself don't know where to search for scholarships, but this helps giving me ideas on where to start my search for good scholarships that will fit me. I agree that talking to your high school staff members are a good way to find scholarships because they can help find ones that fit you and your interests.

Amy Sutton's curator insight, June 4, 2014 12:05 PM

I had some difficulty searching for scholarships and filling them out because I regret not doing as many as I planned. These are just a few tips to suggest on looking for scholarships. My career counselor at school was helpful to me and I wish I would've gone to her sooner.

30 Easy Ways to Save Money (and No, you are not doing them all!) - by Dumb Little Man | College Scholarship Search | Scoop.it

While this article isn't about scholarhsips, it does talk about alot of ways to save money in college and in life. THis was helpful because if I can cut back on my spending then I wont need to depend on college scholarships as much as I do need to now. A few of the things in this article I don't do now that I need to work on are cooking at home, buying in bulk, and regulating electricity use.
