So I’m researching student loan forgiveness for teachers, and I have some questions. I email my state representative for that sort of thing and ask him for some info. He sends me here:
I entered college in August 1997. That means I am totally freakin’ screwed, because there was no way I could repay my first student loan before October 1, 1998 (because I was still in school dammit), and I continued to borrow throughout my college career.
The page says that when Congress enacted this loan forgiveness program, they placed the start date at October 1, 1998 to encourage new people to become teachers. I assume that means they want YOUNGER people to enter into teaching programs.
Well they completely screwed anyone who is OLDER (I’m only 29 for Christ’s sake). Even someone who entered school in 1998 is screwed, because they would have gotten their loans in August of 1998. They’re screwed big time.
Thanks a lot, Congress.
No wait…what I meant to say was…
Fuck You, Congress. Fuck you and your stupid loan forgiveness laws that screw over anyone who is 28+.
