There are several states that are using the tuition reimbursement program to pay back student loans on the state level right now. These states are bringing back motivated, highly qualified, and a younger work force back to their states. Maine and Rhode Island were smart enough to understand the student loan crisis and use it to help each other.
The statistics above do not include "For-Profit Schools".
I believe the "For-Profit Schools" are going to cause a bigger problem than our public institutions!

Our economy is a mess and getting worse everyday. It time to think outside the box! It seems our Congress and President answer is always more loans.Don't we have enough debt already?
