Fixing the student debt crisis makes our public schools stronger.
The victories around Public Service Loan Forgiveness and student debt cancellation is an excellent example of the power of our union and how educators uniting together can benefit the lives of many.
NEA has developed tools for educators to make the most of Public Service Loan Forgiveness and advocate for further student debt cancellation.

Almost half of all current educators have had to take on student debt to enter the profession. This reality keeps too many talented young people out of the profession and pushes out those who do enter it.
We believe that every educator should be able to afford to learn without limits, and without a lifelong burden of student debt. That's why NEA’s student debt experts have created tools designed to help educators through the complicated student debt system, including webinars explaining opportunities for relief.
