Nine members of the American Federation of Teachers in four states filed a lawsuit on Wednesday, on behalf of themselves and all other similarly situated public servants, accusing the student loan servicer Navient of misleading borrowers in public service professions from accessing a loan forgiveness program to boost its own profits. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/03/business/student-loan-forgiveness-lawsuit.html

 

Loan servicers like Navient are fueling the #StudentDebtCrisis by misleading people about their repayment options. Members of the AFT have filed a class-action suit against Navient. Learn more: www.Navientloanfraud.com

 

Public service debt relief is broken. Read AFT President Randi Weingarten’s piece about how this vital program isn’t working, in part because DeVos and private student loan companies don’t want it to. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/27/opinion/public-service-loans-education.html

 

The #StudentDebtCrisis is real: AFT members share how they're not only losing sleep over it, they're losing their homes, skimping on medical care and going without meals because they still owe on their student loans. https://aftvoices.org/this-summer-the-aft-conducted-a-survey-to-determine-the-effects-of-student-debt-on-aft-members-who-ce05250ecaee

 

Even retirees are victims of the #StudentDebtCrisis. AFT member Susan Vincent will be paying off her student debt until she's 87. https://aftvoices.org/paying-off-student-loans-until-shes-87-b308b02b9d34
