VALERIE SCHULTZ: Forgive us our student loan debt

Valerie Schultz

My husband and I are representative of the 43 million Americans who took out student loans and still carry a balance on them. In addition to helping our kids, we took out a loan for my husband to complete his doctorate.

After decades of making our minimum payments, we actually owed more than the original amount of the loan: Thanks to accruing interest, our remaining balance was larger than what we borrowed.
