  • AFT Student Debt Survey

    From The American Federation of Teachers (AFT): The student loan crisis continues as borrowers burdened by debt delay life milestones and work multiple jobs just to stay afloat. Nevertheless, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is still trying to dismantle protections against loan servicers that take advantage of low-income students. We know that student loan debt has soared to an all-time high of $1.4 trillion, but it’s these personal stories that bring it home—stories from people like AFT member Saundra Mobley, above, testifying about how loan servicers increased her debt. They’re also the reason the AFT continues to offer student debt clinics and online tools to help individuals ease their debt burden. The AFT is also urging members to take a student debt survey to better understand the problem. Take the AFT Student Debt Survey HERE.
