If you have student loan debt, it’s not surprising. Hundreds of thousands of Georgians do. As a matter fact, the average student loan borrower in Georgia owes over $30,000 – the second highest amount in the nation.
The staggering student loan debt owed by Georgians is not just a problem. It’s a full-blown crisis – a crisis our Governor and our lawmakers are ignoring.
So speak up. Tell us what needs to change.
This crushing debt affects everyday Georgians who are just trying to create better lives for themselves and their families. Many students are being preyed upon by for-profit colleges that game the system and leave students with a sub-par education and an Ivy League-level bill to pay.
Student loan debt not only affects many of us individually, it hurts our whole economy. Burdened by the heavy weight of long-term debt, fewer people are able to buy their first home, start a new business or invest in their future.
