I don't think there's really a good answer here.  I'm normally a personal responsibility guy and I think this opens up a huge can of worms with regards to past and future student loans, but we can't ignore the predatory nature of the student loan/higher education cabal.  They've sold a generation of teenagers, and their parents, on the concept of spending six figures to get a worthless "studies" degree.  The colleges and universities have enriched themselves greatly while so many students get out of school and are in a financial hole from which they'll have great difficulty extricating themselves.  This has cascade effects for family and community formation that affect us all.  We need a "Great Reset" in higher education, and I'm inclined to promote srossi's version of it, but that doesn't mean we can ignore the impact all this debt is having on society.
