Proposed Tuition Freeze

According to a recent article by Emily Zaborniak, Governor Christine Gregoire has taken a proactive role in stopping the problem of escalating tuition rates. Her proposed tuition cap is the first active step in years that a politician has taken to battle the rising costs of education.

As a result of Gregoire’s attempt to cap rising tuition costs, politicians and educational spokespeople have joined the cause by pushing the issue of college affordability to the forefronts of their agendas. Gregoire proposed a tuition cap that would limit annual tuition costs to $2,586 for community and technical college students in Washington State. Her plan would also expand WSU medical-education offerings in Spokane to train more dentists, nurses, and doctors.

The governor has received some criticism for her politically risky move to help college students. Senator Mark Schoesler said, “I’d like to see it capped at inflation.” He is not the only person who has shown concern over a cap on tuition. According to many political activists, the cap is a temporary band-aid that does not address the problem of education costs for middle-class Americans. Some of the alternative plans that have been embraced include Senator Edward Kennedy’s Student Loan Sunshine Act and new proposals by several Democratic leaders.

What this new political initiative means to the middle-class family trying to afford college tuition is that the political arena recognizes that the cost of education, which is spiraling out of control, is manageable, but families need to be proactive regarding the loans they take out to pay for their children’s educations.

How EdFed Helped others!
When I first contacted EdFed, I knew nothing about consolidation. All I knew is that there was a deadline. The customer service representatives at EdFed were able to explain everything to me in terms that I could understand. I owe a substantial amount of money in student loans, and I didn't even know who my lenders were. EdFed was able to compile this information for me, calculated my low fixed interest rate, and explain their money saving benefits. Other lenders weren't even accepting phone calls prior to the deadline! Thank you for taking the time to go over my consolidation with me.

Education is one of the most basic right of any human, but with the increase in prices and the costs involved in education this has made these rights turn into a privilege which very few can enjoy. Any normal person today in the whole of United States has to take an education loan at one point of time to pay for their education fees.
