Is it still worth it for low-income students to attend college, given the debt incurred? This book provides a new framework for evaluating the financial aid system in America, positing that aid must not only allow access to higher education, but also help students succeed in college and facilitate their financial health post-college. • Reveals the inadequacy of the scope of the current educational and economic policy debates, including moves to funnel low-income children toward two-year degrees, structure alternative debt repayment schedules, and constrain increases in college tuition • Answers the question: "Does the student who goes to college and graduates but has outstanding student debt achieve similar financial outcomes to the student who graduates from college without student debt?" • Examines an important subject of interest to educators, students, and general readers that is related to the larger topics of education, economics, social problems, social policy, public policy, debt, and asset building • Provides empirical evidence and theoretical support for a fundamental shift in U.S. financial aid policy, from debt dependence to asset empowerment, including an explanation of how institutional facilitation makes Children's Savings Accounts potentially potent levers for children's educational attainment and economic well-being, before, during, and after college

This thesis expressly addresses the plight of young American males ages 15 to 25. The current (2009) crisis is their total lack of education, lack of basic skills, employability, ambition, manners and morality. This is all enforced by their 20 - 27% unemployment numbers and the fact that employers would rather hire women than them by a 15% margin. It is a hard hitting expose of the death of our nation and those who caused it. It begins with a study of man's inherent ignorance and penchant for self destruction. It addresses the "cause and effect' when deeply flawed leaders and politicians chose to enrich themselves by raiding the public treasury. But the most damning message of all is the onslaught of wickedness imposed on our nation by the advent of the rebellious "Hippie Generations"! America will never, ever recover from this curse. But it is a serious and encouraging message to our young men, 15 to 25, that even after surviving 12 years of the ravages of Public Education; they can change and even prosper without a college education!
