STUDY: Fear Of Student Loan Debt Keeping Illinois Kids Out Of College

Student loan debt and the fear of it is keeping a lot of young people in Illinois out of college.

That’s according to a new survey by Country Financial. It finds that nearly half of students who did not go on to college after high school cited the fact that they would have had to incur student loan debt to go.

And more than half of those who started college, but then dropped out, blamed it on the student loan debt they were racking up.
