Your Call 081909 What's the state of student loans?

What's the state of student loans? On the next Your Call we'll examine the politics behind the billions of dollars college students borrow every year. We'll be joined by Serge Bakalian, filmmaker of the forthcoming documentary Default, Tamara Draut of Demos, and Alan Collinge of Student Loan Justice. The Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act would have students borrow directly from the federal government - is that a good thing?

Send us an email at or join us live at 11 a.m. What's wrong with the student loan industry? And how should we fix it? It's Your Call with Sandip Roy and you.
