Students May Not be Able to Afford Public Service Careers
As record numbers of students become civically engaged, they may face some harsh realities when it comes to how much they can give back after graduation. A new report from the U.S. Public Interest Research Group entitled "Paying Back, Not Giving Back: Student Debt's Negative Impact on Public Service Career Opportunities" examines what careers college graduates can't necessarily afford to pursue. High among them are education and social work. Low pay in these fields coupled with burgeoning student loan payments is creating "unmanageable" debt–and students needing to think twice about pursuing their vocational dreams.
