Presidential hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, just told us about an aspect of her presidential platform and it made the internet go WILD. She proposed student loan forgiveness of $50k for folks that make up to $100k. AND she is also saying that folks who earn up to $250k can also receive some form of student loan debt forgiveness.

So in this lab we wanted to know more about who this would affect, the history of student loans, and how we even got into this student loan debt crisis in the first place.

On May 18th we had an Instagram Live session with Colleen Campbell. She dropped amazing gems and links we think are great resources. Check them out below!
