Stunning Study Shows Black College Grads More Likely To Default On Student Debt Than White Dropouts – But Employers Definitely Aren’t Racist

We've written voluminously about America's worsening student debt crisis. It's a tough subject to broach because personal responsibility demands that people repay what they borrowed. But between soaring tuition costs (enabled in part by the ease with which students can obtain loans that are effectively underwritten by the U.S. taxpayer) and the fact that increasingly, the skills cultivated in undergraduate and graduate programs are disconnected from those employers apparently value, the prospec

      No, actually the college admissions often adjust (lower) Asian kids’ SAT scores because otherwise they feel we would disproportionately fill the classes of the most popular programs, especially in math/science engineering and medicine.

      Asians prioritize a good education and work hard. It’s a culture thingy.

      And I paid back all my student loans, even though I’m out of country now and thus probably could have skipped. I’m very grateful for my college experience and what I learned. Some of the best years of my life. Unfortunately, some college programs and experiences aren’t as positive.

        Funny thing how “cultures” seem to sometimes prioritize different things … and yield different results, accordingly …
