Sample Summary

What appears below is excerpted  and slightly adapted from another blog I maintain.

Tamar Lewin's September 12, 2011, article "Student Loan Default Rates Rise Sharply in Past Year" appeared in the online New York Times.  In the article, Lewin notes that there have been larger numbers of students failing to make their required student loan repayments, particularly at for-profit colleges, which largely serve low-income students and are the fastest-growing portion of the college population. Lewin makes mention of gainful employment regulations and of the ability of students to opt for income-based repayment plans, which does ameliorate the depressing tone of the article and makes it a bit more effective a piece of reporting.
