I really like this idea from Kurt Schlichter: “student loans need to come from the school and to be dischargeable in bankruptcy”

Kurt Schlichter just wrote this excellent column, with a whole bunch of ways to improves colleges.

Of Schlichter’s many excellent ideas, this one is my favorite. He wrote:

Third, student loans need to come from the school and to be dischargeable in bankruptcy. A school is going to be a lot less eager to say, “Sure, go ahead and major in Norwegian Feminist Dance Theory” if they are on the hook when their ardent young scholar can’t get a gig that can pay back the sticker price.

That’s brilliant – absolutely brilliant.

I hope Schlichter’s idea gets adopted as national policy.
