College Students Are Enraged Over Schools Deceiving Them With False Promises Of A Well-Paying Career After Graduation #YourRantForToday #GMN

Syd Andrade, a 27-year-old aspiring video-game designer living in Austin, Texas, owes $30,000 in federal student loans. Mr. Andrade is among the thousands of Americans petitioning the Education Department to forgive their loans, arguing that their schools deceived them with false promises.

Daily Rant: Well I’m just going to start off by saying this is some bulls**t, if you rack up more than $100,000 from student loans and your college fails to provide you with any resources or contacts to finding a career out of college then you deserve to get your money back! Its ridiculous how college institutions have become a BIG money making business these days especially in a economy where millennials are working at Starbucks, McDonalds, Burger King, Office Depot, & many other minimum wage jobs just to payback their student loans. Keep in mind, that minimum wage check that their getting does not even put a DENT in their student loans!

For example, a former graduate named Andrade graduated from an Art Institution in 2011, he received a phone call from a recruiter explaining how they had “great facilities, great teachers, use of industry-standard software for a game-art design program”, later he found out that the institution used “outdated software and were taught by an instructor who knew less than the students”, what end up happening was that the school had promise to land him a job, but they ended up placing him in an “$8-an-hour job working behind the counter at a local Office Depot”. -Josh Mitchell/WSJ

All I’m saying is If the government can bailout the banks that almost brought the U.S. economy to its knees then they should bailout all these students who are buried in thousands of dollars worth of debt! #JustSayin #EndRant
