We have all heard about the student loan dilemma in this country. We have all heard about the economy spiraling downward and so many people not working. There is much blame to be said but no solutions to the disastrous position we are in. Everyone wants to blame everyone else but no one wants to take the fault.
What are you supposed to do if those who caused this problem are not admitting their mistakes?
Shouldn’t the private student loan lenders admit that they are taking advantage of the system and charging insane interest rates? Shouldn’t the private student loan lenders admit that they were giving out loans to so many people that they shouldn’t have? Shouldn’t the private student loan lenders admit that they knew that they were destroying the lives of so many people and this country?
Shouldn’t the colleges admit that their skyrocketing costs were unnecessary? Shouldn’t the colleges admit that they were charging more because they knew that the private loan lenders would just hand out money with no limits?
What are you supposed to do when the only people being blamed for the student loan bubble is the students and their parents? Should we blame people for wanting to be educated? Should we blame people for trying to better themselves? Should we blame people for doing the right thing?
Recently, stories have been released about students being irresponsible and not making the right financial decisions. Doesn’t it seem hilarious to read these stories right after the student loan dilemma escalated?
What are you supposed to do when people realize their mistakes and then they try to cover up and place blame on innocent people? Is it right to try and place blame on others? Aren’t we taught to take responsibility for our actions? So why aren’t thee private student loan lenders and the colleges taking responsibility for their actions? If they are really in the business to educate the public and help others, shouldn’t they admit their faults, change their rules and make a better society?
We all as a society have to work together to make a better future for ourselves, our parents and our children. Yet, young adults were told to go to college. Young adults saw the hardships of their parents and grandparents. If two generations believed that education betters your future, wouldn’t you want to go to college?
What are you supposed to do when you entered college believing that it was a place of learning and leave knowing it was only a place of business that you gave money to that you didn’t even have?
We are all supposed to learn from our mistakes. However, that is not the case for some. Some individuals don’t want to admit their wrongdoing for fear of being scrutinized or for the sole reason that they truly believe they are not at fault.
We can all agreeably blame certain people but that is not going to resolve the current situation.
Shouldn’t we all now concentrate on resolutions?
What should we do in the current situation to unleash the chains from young people and have a better future for their parents and their children? As a society, don’t we want to provide opportunity to all and whoever chooses to take the opportunity will succeed?
What are we supposed to do for the people who have $200,000 out in student loans? What are we supposed to do for the parents who co-signed the loans to provide better opportunity for their children? What are we supposed to do for the children in high school who don’t want to go to college because of the costs?
Every generation makes mistakes; however, how do we provide relief to the current mistake at the same time of educating the future generation without discouraging them or setting them up for failure?
We all know that we can’t prevent all problems but once a problem occurs, shouldn’t we as a whole resolve that problem to better improve society? If people are already upset about their life at a young age, do you really believe that they are going to open up businesses, be innovative or even try to make a better society? If you start off life already failing, how much effort do you believe one will give to make a better future for the younger generations?
What are we supposed to do now to have a better quality of life for all?
