Clinton Vows to Help Students With Debt

June 15th, 2015


In a speech billed as a campaign opening, Hillary Clinton, favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination, pledged Saturday to take steps to help students afford higher education. She twice referred to students' debt burdens, and vowed to do something about them. She said that a measure of success is "how many young people go to college without drowning in debt," and "Let’s make college affordable and available to all… and lift the crushing burden of student debt." She did not, at least on Saturday, explicitly endorse free public higher education or debt-free college, as many are expecting her to do in some form in the next month.
