Poem #65: The Cost of Education
My education loan servicer got back to me about how much my payment will be going up. Ick. I was last a student nearly ten years ago and still I have an embarrassingly high amount owed. The amount of interest I pay to a federal loan servicer is cringe worthy. I really think education is the last thing we should be charging interest to anyone for and am ready to vote the right people in office to make a change. So today's poem is very personal. While I agree that no education is every wasted, I believe our current system cripples graduates' abilities to navigate to adulthood and contribute to the welfare of a community. I would love if nobody ever has a reason to write a poem like I did today. We can do better.
