Is the Student Loan Debt Bubble Real? You Decide!

I am going to keep this very short today I want you to digest just a few facts

In just the start of 2013 January and February alone! The banks have declared $3 billion of student loan debt as noncollectable, according to Equifax's latest National Consumer Credit Trends Report.
This represents a 36 percent surge from the same period last year!

We now have thirty-five percent of people under 30 with student loans that are at least 90 days late on payments compared to 26 percent in 2008! reports from the Federal Reserve and Equifax.
It is also noted this number is likely higher because of  deferments in a grace period!

FICO  reported approximately 12 million Americans had two or more student loans in 2005
The figure has more than doubled to 26 million in 2012!

The average student loan debt in 2005 $17,233 this debt has increased 58 percent
 to $27,253 in 2012
A comparison of all other debt  categories  combined only grew 4.3 percent!
Does anyone see a problem here?

I am going to leave you with 1 last fact

FinAid has reported  there is an 8% Increase a year in college tuition . I ask you to pull out your
calculator's this means tuition is doubling every nine years!

The Facts don't lie............................

I have only 1 agenda, and that is every child should be afforded the opportunity
