Lawrence Lessig in Forbes Magazine 2016 Candidates


On Education: Congress should decide student loan rates, not banks

On Student Loans: "America must make critical decisions about how to make education work better. We can't make those decisions so long as the decision makers are focused on the money. Congress should decide whether interest rates on student loans should be lower, or at least, whether the loans should be able to be refinanced. (I would support both.) It shouldn't have to worry about contributions from the banking industry as it makes those decisions."

On Education: No Child Left Behind gave birth to testing industry

On Testing: "An incredible testing industry has been born in light of No Child Left Behind. Congress should decide whether such testing should continue-without worrying about whether contributions from the testing industry will continue."
