College: Advantage or Avalanche?

Most College Kids Are Terrified of Their Student Debt
First thing I thought when I read the Gawker headline was "as well they should be".  Smiled when I saw that was the second sentence. But the relatively new phenomenon of crushing student loan burdens is nothing to smile about.  It's an anchor around the neck of our youth  … and our economic future.  All for doing what they were raised to believe was the best way to ensure a stable, successful future.
"A new poll shows that college-age Americans are wildly, overwhelmingly worried about student loan debt. As well they should be. And they blame colleges. As well they should."
