In recognition of National Higher Education Day, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair, Martha Laning, released the following statement:

“In Wisconsin, we have always known the value of higher education. Whether it is going to a technical college to learn how to be a carpenter or attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison to study medicine, skilled workers and an educated workforce are crucial elements to creating a healthy climate for business and growing our state’s economy.

“Currently, many people are opting out of getting a higher education because of how expensive it has become. There are one million Wisconsinites saddled with over $19 billion in student debt and seventy percent of Wisconsin’s graduates have student loan debt, the third-highest percentage in the nation. It is clear we must help borrowers refinance their student loans the same way you can a mortgage.

“Democrats understand anyone, regardless of their income, should have an opportunity to a higher education that will help them get ahead.”
