A student debt crisis is looming on the horizon. The recession brought many people back to the educational market – student loans were easy to get and students may have thought that having a degree would make a big difference in the job market. While this may be the case for some new college graduates, it isn’t the case for everyone and the delayed jobs recovery combined with more than $1 trillion in student debt may just be the recipe for the nation’s next major economic crisis.
