College Debt and the American Family
Author: Colleen T. O’Brien
This comprehensive summary report seeks to add to public knowledge about borrowing for college. The study combines U.S. Department of Education data and analyses of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study to present national college borrowing trends since 1990. It also features a national survey of student and family borrowers to gauge the impact of student loan debt on their attitudes about college, major financial decisions, and the possible ramifications of debt burden.
