I recall when looking for colleges with my children we looked at the courses offered, the alignment with their interests, their overall rankings followed up by campus visits. Never did it cross our minds to ask about salaries after graduation or claims of jobs obtained; that was the students responsibility after four years of preparation.
In the 21st century if you were told or even led to believe you would find a good job paying a good salary after college, but you didn’t you are entitled to have your student loans forgiven (at taxpayers expense). The real truth is that you were probably too gullible, naive or lacking common sense to go to college in the first place. Not to worry, society will pick up the slack for you.
Americans are applying in droves to have their federal student loans forgiven on the grounds they were lied to by their colleges, new figures show.
