Investing in education
is an investment in economic and community development.
Student debt is too high. It cripples economic development.
In exchange for forgiving student debt, I support a program
that would require that graduates of MA higher education work
or own a business in Massachusetts for a period of time that
is commensurate with the taxpayer funded benefit that they receive.
Tinkering with the interest rate on student debt is a distraction
from the real solution. Such proposals do not address the errant
public budget decisions that led to the situation in which students
are making decisions to forego the continuation of their education.
The Oct 4, 2010 blog below contains the text of my public statement
to a rally sponsored by the Public Higher Education Network
of Massachusetts (PHENOM).
My October 1, 2012
release establishes a close link between better budgets
and affordable quality education. The amount of money needed
for an individual to pay for public higher education is a function
of the public budget, which the legislature is responsible for.
