Cancellation of student loan debt, Biden plan for progressive America

Biden sent a request to have clarity on authority to wipe clean student loan debt


In very plain terms, A student loan is a type of loan designed to help students pay for post-secondary education and the associated fees, such as tuition, books and supplies, and living expenses. It may differ from other types of loans in the fact that the interest rate may be substantially lower and the repayment schedule may be deferred while the student is still in school. It also differs in many countries in the strict laws regulating renegotiating and bankruptcy.

Most college students in the United States qualify for federal student loans.[34] Students can borrow the same amount of money, at the same price, regardless of their income or their parents' incomes, regardless of their expected future income, and regardless of their credit history. Only students who have defaulted on federal student loans or have been convicted of drug offences, and have not completed a rehabilitation program, are excluded. Borrowers from families with low income with separation more tend to default than those from higher-income families. Also, borrowers entering repayment after sophomore are more likely to default.

While Biden is busy reverting Trump policy, not in favour of progressing America, student loan tops the chart. Seventy-two thousand student loan borrowers sigh of relief after the Department of Education announced they will have the entirety of their debt forgiven. The 72,000 student loan borrowers impacted by the Department of Education’s announcement already received partial loan forgiveness when the Trump Administration was still in office. Now, those loans will be fully forgiven.

Officials in the Biden administration said the DeVos-led formula to cancel student loans in cases of deception or abrupt school closure made it unfairly difficult for borrowers. “Borrowers deserve a simplified and fair path to relief when they have been harmed by their institution’s misconduct,” said Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona in a statement. “A close review of these claims and the associated evidence showed these borrowers have been harmed and we will grant them a fresh start from their debt.”

Forgiving student debt has become a major point of debate critics of student loan debt forgiveness, including conservatives and some liberals, argue that it would unfairly benefit higher-income earners with college educations and that individuals who took out loans have a responsibility to pay them back, regardless of circumstance.
