Debt-Free Catches On

Inside Higher Ed


Mark Huelsman, senior policy analyst at Demos, said that the debt-free concept relies on what many higher education policy groups have long been saying: that states need to boost their spending on higher education and that student loan debt is crushing some borrowers and a drag on the economy.

“We think there are a number of ways to get to debt-free college, but this is about creating the umbrella for that conversation to take place,” he said. “From a strategic perspective it’s good to have that bold marker in mind that can galvanize people. So many good policies can flow through that.”
