Student debt forgiveness is not a solution.
The quality of the trade or college degree is the product. Whether the product is paid for by borrowing money or if it is paid for otherwise doesn’t matter.
All that should matter is that the product was worth the price or the cost in the first place.
The very worse condition to be in is having a trade or college degree that is not in demand – and – student debt on top of a degree that employers are not looking for, or from institutions that are not competitive.
The solution is the quality of the trade and college degree. Otherwise it doesn’t matter if it is free or if it is expensive.
