Ignoring the Problem

Senator Warren’s proposal to make student loans available at just 0.75% actually exacerbates the problem.

The underlying problem is the rising cost of tuition. A solution: force schools who accept cheap student loans to massively expand online course offerings and guarantee full credit transferability across schools.
