The decision to file bankruptcy can be a difficult and emotional experience for any person. With that decision comes a flood of unanswered questions and doubts when it comes to assessing debts and liabilities to be covered by the bankruptcy. One of the most commonly asked questions is whether or not student loans can be discharged in a bankruptcy. To learn more, listen to this podcast with Timothy Hughes of Lavelle Law.
With more than $1 trillion in student loans outstanding in this country, crippling debt is no longer confined to dropouts from for-profit colleges or graduate students who owe on many years of education, some of the overextended debtors in years past. As prices soar, a college degree statistically remains a good lifetime investment, but it often comes with an unprecedented financial burden.
Caitlin Kovalkoski, Director of Bank Community Engagement will be our guest tonight to discuss options for students and parents as they manage their Me, Inc. Enterprises effectively.
Student loans are a catch-22 for our youth. If the government forgives student loans, who's going to pay for it? The taxpayers... who are also the students. They're going to pay one way or the other. Charlie Kirk, Founder of Turning Point USA says we need to get government out of the student loan business.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
STUDENT LOANS - A College Degree is No Guarantee
1. Unemployment of Black College Students - In 2013, 12.4 percent of black college graduates
between the ages of 22 and 27 were unemployed. For all college graduates in the same age
range, the unemployment rate was 5.6 percent.
2. Underemployed Black College Students - In 2013, more than half (55.9 percent) of employed black recent college graduates were “underemployed” –defined as working in an occupation that typically does not require a four-year college degree. Even before the Great Recession, almost half of black recent graduates were underemployed (45.0 percent in 2007).
3. A Solution to the problem
From uniforms to lunch plans, spirit wear to tuition & books, and everything in between, schools are rapidly becoming one of the most profitable money machines in the country.
Student Loans are growing out of control. The simple equations seems to be:
Higher debt = higher degrees = less paying job

Tonight at 8pm ET on Ernest Radio Network, it's Beaten Path.
Your hosts Jane Hoffman & Jon Yoder talk about a few subjects tonight. First up, transferring student loans from private lenders to the department of education: is it a good idea? Jon has an idea that university fees will just get the average American more in debt. Is that a scam, or just paying your debt to society? (You've already paid for college, why pile on the debt?)
Also, what's the difference between suffering to do what's right, opposed to suffering for doing stupid things, or the wrong things? Some say good can come of both.
All this plus NPR news, music, and more. Don't miss it.
