baggage for life

Student loans are nice, until after college and you have to start paying interest. If we can't make education cheaper, take away interest.

After talking to my mom about her college education, she shared with me that after 3-4 years of attending a small, cheaper college, if there was no interest added onto her student loans she would be out of debt. 15 years later and she is still slowly paying off her dues, for a diploma she hasn't found a chance to use.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

Interest free loans will help make debt lower and take less time to pay off.
