John Oliver examining student debt and its devastating implications
Student Debt: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
"John Oliver discusses student debt, which is awful, as well as for-profit colleges, who are awfully good at inflicting debt upon us."
This video is actually extremely relevant to myself because I am going to be a freshmen to the Class of 2022 in August, 2018. I will likely find myself in a position where I will need to take out loans to pay for the staggering cost of education in my country. And at this present moment (2/28/18), I'm not sure how, or even if, I will be able to pay those back. The prospect of college is nauseating enough, and having to think about near-guaranteed financial burdens does not ease the stress and anxiety.
