'Degrees Not Debt' campaign designed to help students access the American Dream
Every American deserves a fair shot at higher education. College is increasingly unattainable for students, and existing student debt exceeds an astounding $1.2 trillion. There are approximately 40 million people in the U.S. who have student debt. Student debt averages $29,400 per person.
It’s time to TAKE ACTION and reduce student debt. NEA has launched "Degrees Not Debt," an informational campaign to help NEA members, students, and their families learn about their options to make college more affordable - AND to illuminate the crisis, join in the WEEK OF ACTION Nov. 10-18.
Check our Degrees Not Debt webpage for information and resources to create your own event and participate in the "Degrees Not Debt" WEEK OF ACTION!
