College should be affordable to all those who want to attend who will study hard and improve their future career opportunities. Over the last 30 years, the cost of college has increased by 300 percent, forcing some students to take on overwhelming student loan debt or putting a college degree entirely out of reach for others. Student loan debt is now the highest form of personal debt in the nation, reaching over $1.3 trillion for 38 million student loan borrowers across the country. The first step to solving this problem is to make sure institutions receiving federal funding are doing their part to make a degree more affordable and accessible for all students.
