Student loan relief


— I’d like to voice my support for those government officials pushing further student loan relief legislation.

As a rising senior in high school, being able to afford a college education is an issue that is going to rear its ugly head all too soon. Cost is going to be a major factor in my decision, but it should not have to be.

Benjamin Franklin is quoted as saying, “The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance,” but that may not be the case any longer.

Students are paying more and more for degrees that are worth less and less. Students should not have to count out a better option for their schooling just because of the cost.
