Letter: Free of work

SHARE Letter: Free of work

Forgiving massive amounts of student debt, as announced this week by the secretary of education, is a great thing for the students in debt, but it means taxpayers have to pick up the tab for diplomas that are worth very little.

I’m all for helping out other people, but there needs to be some accountability at every new generation level; otherwise, I worry our great-grandchildren will think that the world is theirs, free of charge and free of work.

If these students getting their loans forgiven have learned anything at school, I hope it was how to move on through this difficult time and actually work, work, work for the future. There is no greater way to actually use school knowledge than by putting an effort into improving communities around us.
