John Faso on Education

 

 


Easy college loans causes tuition inflation

Higher education is a gateway to our 21st century global marketplace. We should, however, encourage students to better plan for higher education and pursue programs where there is a strong likelihood of employment post-graduation.

Increased student loan borrowing has come as a direct result of massive tuition inflation over the past several decades. Many analysts have linked the ever-increasing cost of college to the easy availability of subsidized student loans.

I will work in Congress to develop a college affordability agenda. First, we should encourage more families of aspiring college students to help their children achieve a college education through responsible saving.

Next, Congress should utilize loan-default calculations which more accurately represent the ability of borrowers from particular institutions to repay their federally guaranteed loans. If you know the real price of something, you're likelier to make better choices. The same holds true for choosing a college.

Local control, not Common Core and No Child Left Behind

Congress often navigates territory outside its purview by spending time and money on issues best left to local governments. In the past few years, billions in federal spending has gone to Common Core and No Child Left Behind, despite many states scaling back participation in these programs and little in the way of educational attainment to show for the money spent.
