Nearly all standard consumer protections have been removed by Congress rom student loans. This is the real problem.

They need to be restored.

If you think education is expensive, you should see how much stupid costs!~ Jon Corzine

"Paradoxically, students at some of the most expensive schools have the least debt. That's because schools such as Princeton University in Princeton, N.J., and Drew University in Madison, N.J., which cost more than $40,000 for students who live on campus, have large endowments that allow the institutions to supplement tuition for middle-class and lower-income students."

Uh. no. It's BECAUSE the kids who go to Princeton and similar schools tend to come from disproportionately WEALTHY families who can pay high tuition. Seton Hall is a blue-collar Catholic commuter school.

I am appalled that your article online about student debt for college has a large google add for alternate loans for students. Lets just get them even more into debt!!
