Student debt from high-fees education

Some images on student loan / education fees debt (to financers and even to family)

This post is just for an introduction. I encourage you to read up more on this, especially if you're planning to send your son/daughter abroad for higher studies.
There's a lot of good infographics that you can find: Go to and search for "student loan debt infographic"

Also, an earlier post of mine on this:

I would love it if student loan forgiveness applied to me. I am graduating in a year and I'm afraid of the debt. I currently don't have a job to pay the minimum payback amount.

Hi Alex, if you're in the US, please campaign and vote for Jill Stein this election : the only candidate who wants to reign in student debt.
Education as a Right:

Guarantee tuition-free, world-class public education from pre-school through university.
Abolish student debt to free a generation of Americans from debt servitude.
Protect our public school systems from privatization.
Use restorative justice to address conflicts before they occur, and involve students in the process.
Evaluate teacher performance through assessment by fellow professionals. Do not rely on high stakes tests that reflect economic status of the community, and punish teachers working in low income communities of color.
Replace Common Core with curriculum developed by educators, not corporations, with input from parents and communities.
Stop denying students diplomas based on high stakes tests.
Stop using merit pay to punish teachers who work with the most challenging student populations.
Restore arts, music and recreation to school curriculums.
Ensure racially inclusive, sensitive and relevant curriculums.
Use Department of Education powers to offer grants and funding to encourage metropolitan desegregation plans based on socioeconomically balanced schools.
Recognize poverty as the key obstacle to learning. Ensure that kids come to school ready to learn: healthy, nourished, secure and free from violence.
Increase federal funding of public schools to equalize public school funding.

Update on the above post : After seeing how Jill Stein became a shill for Hillary post the election and tried pointless recounts in swing states Trump won in while not touching the swing states where Hillary had won by lower margins and states from where actual reports had come citing electoral fraud, I no longer support Jill Stein. I think she has betrayed her supporters who wanted to see a genuine third option. To give the benefit of the doubt, maybe she too got threatened into doing it. But in any case she's no longer a viable option.
