WNYC The Takeaway April 23, 2019
On Monday, 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren rolled out a plan to reduce student loan debt of up to $50,000 for millions of Americans.
Her plan also includes free tuition for public colleges and a creates a $50 billion fund for historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions.
Warren’s plan goes further, and into more detail, than any other presidential candidate’s, but she isn’t the only one talking about this. With people in the U.S. owing a collective $1.5 trillion in student debt, this crisis is a pressing concern for many voters heading into the next election.
Joining The Takeaway to help break down this policy proposal and what it might mean for higher education is Annie Nova, a personal finance reporter for CNBC covering education.
