Is the Student Loan Burden Really Too Heavy?
Baum, Sandy
Educational Record, v77 n1 p30-36 Win 1996
Student loan debt levels are discussed in relation to borrowing patterns, educational opportunity, and cost-effectiveness of a college education; and common concerns about debt level are examined. It is concluded that while student indebtedness is high, these concerns are out of proportion to reality and reflect inappropriate assumptions about student consumption needs. (MSE)
