David Sarasohn: Helping Oregonians afford college, avoid debt

October 4th, 2014

The truly discouraging thing may not be that a large proportion of Oregon college graduates have knee-buckling levels of debt, narrowing their life options, limiting their ability to fuel the economy, buy a house or even get married and have children.
The truly discouraging thing is that they may be the lucky ones.
The situation can be even worse for young people scared by sticker shock away from even imagining higher education, or for the growing number in the worst-of-both-worlds situation of taking on debt, but with their resources giving out before they actually get a degree.
Or for the people trying to build an economic future for Oregon with a clogged pipeline of young Oregonians educated for the 21st century.
