It seems that it is fair for the students to learn at an early age that nothing is free, including your education. And that other people cannot carry their education debt.

Back in the 60s student loans were given and the students spent years of their early working lives paying it back. And do we (the Government) actually get back the loan money???I wonder if it is actually returned and paid for or written off against debt?? I see that most people don't feel as I do. Assume most of them would have to be responsible for those children getting the education.
