The Next Time Some Milllenial Expresses Enthusiasm for Student Loan Forgiveness

Remind them America is not special.  9/27/19 The Guardian:
In 1998, universal free higher education ended: fees of £1,000 per year were introduced, and maintenance grants were replaced with loans to be paid back when the student started earning more than £10,000 a year. Since then, costs have risen. In 2006, fees were raised to £3,000 a year. In 2012, this went up to £9,000. In 2017, the cap went up to £9,250, and is expected to keep rising. The average student now leaves university with about £50,000 of debt.
