Needed: Rapid Investment in Higher Education

18Jan08

Another blogger somewhere recently suggested that a major federal investment in education could forestall a recession.  Whatever the validity of that claim, it may make sense to offer very low-interest federal student loans to anyone who wishes to return to school now.  Doing so could give the apparently rising numbers of unemployed people something productive to do.  I would recommend making the loans to anyone who is enrolled on at least a half-time basis and is taking and passing at least one course per semester in math, science, or engineering.
