Education has been the driver of progress in America. Families know that a good education is essential for most good jobs, but they are finding it harder than ever to pay the high costs of college or technical school. Naomi still has big school loans herself, so she understands the pressure working families are facing as they try to pay for education. Naomi supports debt-free education for college students. We have a responsibility to ensure that our students can attend school without being left with mountains of debt.
She wants to reduce the interest rates for school loans, allow families to deduct the interest, and provide more money for grants and loans, as well as protecting loan forgiveness for public service. These steps will help families earn higher wages, which will help grow our economy. She also supports reinvigorating work-study programs and encouraging states to fund public universities more generously. After all, we all have a stake in our nation's future.
