Centennial Institute agrees with SCOTUS on student debt: ‘better ways to deal with’ the rising cost of higher education
LAKEWOOD, Colo. — The Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University releases the following statement after the Supreme Court rejected the Biden administration’s student loan cancelation plan:
Donald Sweeting, Ph.D., chancellor of Colorado Christian University:
“The Biden administration’s student loan forgiveness plan to wipe away broad amounts of student loan debt was fraught with problems from the beginning. It is unfair to every American who has ever worked, saved or paid off their college loan. It contributes to inflation, which continues to be one of America’s biggest worries, and it sets up unrealistic expectations that if you sign a loan agreement of any kind, you don’t necessarily have to pay it back. The rising cost of higher education is a legitimate concern, but there are better ways to deal with it.”
