Chained to college debt
April 15, 2012

The college debt challenge in Iowa is expected only to increase in coming years. The student of the future will be less prepared for college, less able to pay and more likely to be a first-generation college student, according to Iowa College Aid, a nonprofit that administers $59 million in state financial support.
