Who wants to lead America’s school districts? Anyone? Anyone?

Superintendents are leaving their posts in droves, assistant leaders poised to take the top jobs are demurring and bad behavior at school board meetings — now broadcast online for anyone to see — isn’t helping convince candidates to come forward.

Ask someone about student loan debt in America, and they will most likely think of federal loans. But there are many other ways students can end up in debt.

If you have experience with college debt outside federal student loans — such as loans from your college or from a private lender, or an unpaid balance causing your college to withhold your academic transcript, we want to hear from you!

👉Please share this form widely with your networks!

Some colleges are lending directly to students or sending them to collections over small balances. If you have a story, you can contact us here.

“When white folks are suffering” - Andrea Perry This guy is a clown and a piece of 💩 ...bitch bitch bitch and bitch that’s all you liberal as*holes do
If you are all about education how about correcting the caption under the picture of the principal? It should read “an Avoyelles” not “a Avoyelles”.
When I am more into education in USA I wonder what kind of society the really are because when we see on the news Washington invaded, blocked or impose sanctions on say Venezuela, Syria or Iran because the say those countries have no democracy and fail ti give well being to their own citizens. I read black people, brown people, colored people, Latinos all the racial rainbow of humankind. We almost forget we are talking about `CHILDREN` American children born in the USA. Worst when I read more of the teachers `ARE WHITE` What does it mean Are they saying white teachers CAN NOT TEACH COLORED CHILDREN. It is little known by American people that at college, master and PhD level 80 percent of students ARE FOREIGNERS. And the best are Asians. If I were a white teacher at high school or college I would be very worried by these FACTS. But as an outsider with education labor and policy creator mostly in Special Education I can say answers ARE NOT AMONG TEACHERS WHITE OR ELSE BUT IN SAME AMERICAN PEOPLE who believe in `WE THE PEOPLE` our FOUNDATION Fathers gave Us as our Legacy. As Enoch saw when he was in the Glory of God. Just summer reflections cause by high temperatures. Maybe just need a cold lemonade. Thanks for listening me. 😍
