Student Loans: Theory and Practice

April 1982
National Review;4/30/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 8, p469
The article criticizes U.S. president Ronald Reagan's proposal on federally guaranteed and subsidized loans to college students. According to his proposals, the cost of a loan-origination fee would increase from 5 to 10 per cent and the eligibility requirement for a guaranteed and subsidized loan would also be tightened. On campuses across the country, college students are organizing a protest against Reagan's loan proposals. His attempt at minimal reform has raised an articulate opposition. There is a need for the President to reassess his loan proposal.
