Rather than wait 20 to 25 years for relief through other income-driven repayment plans, enrollees in the Save plan who borrowed less than $12,000 can have their debt wiped clean after 10 years of payments.

    At the end of this public school year, May or June, my youngest will get her master's degree in special ed student loan ($58K) forgiven because she has put in 10 years of teaching in public schools. Even though she teaches special needs/spec. ed./disabled students, she still makes less than the typical OTR trucker, journeyman plumber, or state govt. level politician. Anyone else see an issue here?

    Seems to me she should have taken a job as an OTR trucker, journeyman plumber, or the like rather than waste her time with an expensive master's degree... I can tell you that journeymen in most trades are skilled artisans and worth the money they get paid.

    Of course, because everyone should do like in the old Soviet Union and take jobs in demand that serve the Mother Land, and not where their talents, skills, and heart lies.

    My daughter was a special ed student herself in grade school. At age seven she declared that she wanted to be a teacher, a special ed teacher. She worked hard to get passing grades. She graduated with a BS in Education magma cum laude. Ditto for grad school. She has multiple sclerosis and has managed even so to continue to teach, to be a mom of two, and to be a role model to the new teachers they assign her to mentor, along with the student teachers she has every year.

    You need to sit down and shut the fuck up about other people's life choices, careers, vocations. Be happy with the miserable little life you created for yourself, and stop jealousing over others' choices. Asshole.

    No, people should realistically assess what jobs are available and what they pay in choosing a path forward. Choosing a career that you think is your 'calling' or one that you think will make you feel good about yourself is a delusion. There are those that choose a path to make lots of money and advance in power and importance within the existing system. There are those that choose to do something they excel at and end up making lots of money and gain status because of their success.

    You have to be happy with your life choices, and if you choose a career that pays little but is satisfying to you over one that pays well but you have to put up with some grief to do, that's on you.

    Don't complain about shitty pay in a career that pays for shit even if you love what you do. So, all the awards and accolades in the world and $5 gets you a cup of good coffee today. You want to get ahead? Do something other people will pay you lots of cash to do because you do it well. If what you do doesn't merit that, then either find another job or find a way to make what you do more valuable to others.

    Freddie paid his loans back.
    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    Nothing gets forgiven.

    The loans are paid for by the taxpayers, many of whom have no children.

    Parents who worked two jobs to help their children pay off these loans are now going to be paying for their neighbors' children's college loans.

    Wrong, oh Hell yes.

    Democrats & decline in America.

    Alexis De Tocqueville said "The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money”

    Can the nation survive buying the vote with other people's money?

    IOW you believe that ppl should choose their future career based on monetary reasons rather than their talent, skills, and desires. You would have gone far in the old USSR. What a shame you were born here.

    I'm very pleased that my daughter is having her student loan forgiven. How unfortunate that we have citizens who believe that teaching -- esp. children with special needs -- is a stupid choice of career.
