Just saw a long article in the Phoenix Business Journal out the overhang that student loan debt is doing to the kids with the student loan problem.
It’s apparent that none of them did much, if any planning about what would happen after they incurred the debt. There’s a failing on the part of the high schools and community colleges, and especially guidance counsellors who are supposed to prevent this sort of thing.
I didn’t see any reporting about the choice that the kids made to even go to college, much less was it worth it.
Personally, having had two kids that went through college and were bettered by it (both pursued majors they could use in business), I wonder who is advising these kids in high school or community college that going to a four year college is a good idea.
It so happens that I run a Meetup called Growth Group which is dedicated to personal problems like these. The next meeting is October 7th, at 6 pm at the Denny’s, US 60 and Rural. Stop in, have a green slushie and we’ll discuss your situation. Odds are we can figure something out.
