UW-Madison’s Nicholas Hillman spoke about student loan debt and Hillary Clinton’s new higher education proposals during an appearance Thursday, July 14, on “All Sides with Ann Fisher,” a public affairs talk show on WOSU public radio in Ohio.
The segment that included Hillman was called, “Student Debt: What Led To It, How Students Can Plan For Affordable Education.”
The WOSU website notes: “Student debt is crippling more than 40 million Americans in more than $1.3 trillion in debt. But this debt has been a long time coming.”
It continues: “And, while many are struggling to make these payments in order to get a college education, those who profit from it are profiting big. Who are these people and how did these massive debts begin? This hour, we dig in to answer those questions.”
Hillman is an associate professor with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, and is an affiliate of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).
