Debt-Free College: Principles for Prioritizing Low-Income Students
Garcia, Rosa M.
MetadataShow full item record
Since the recession of 2008, skyrocketing college costs and state disinvestment in postsecondary education have forced millions of students to take on significant student loan debt. This $1.5 trillion of debt has made it more difficult for student borrowers to pursue additional schooling, purchase a home, start a family, or save for retirement—leading to greater wealth inequality, particularly in communities of color. This report identifies key principles and recommendations for federal and state policymakers to ensure that low-income students, students of color, and undocumented immigrant students can access and complete a postsecondary credential without incurring debt. These principles are based on CLASP’s expertise and policy research focused on today’s low-income students—youth and adults who face enormous challenges in accessing affordable postsecondary pathways that support their success in school and beyond.
