Students Protest Student Loan Debt

A group of about 50 students protested student loan debt outside of the Department of Education in Washington D.C. Saturday, reports WTOPNews.com:

They danced and chanted “Education is a right! Student power! Fight, fight, fight!”

The protesters also had letters delivered to national education officials requesting that they ease student college debt.

Good for them!  It’s always great to see people taking action for a cause they believe in, and it would be interesting to see what would happen if a nation-wide coordinated movement were developed like what happened Saturday with the Prop 8 protests.

    Philanthropy is one of America’s cherished traits. Now technology is providing a way for donors to connect directly with students in need.
