    We never should have allowed any federally-sponsored student loans to go to any for-profit institutions at all.

    We should not have any federally-sponsored loans to minors.

      Especially not for something like law school. Congress should eliminate both the Federal guarantees on these loans and the prohibition against discharging them in bankruptcy, and let the market make up its own mind about which applicants it makes sense to lend money to, and at what rates of interest. That reform alone would put an end to these abuses overnight.

        And tether tuition.

        Such a reform would simply put an end to the loans in any meaningful sense. After all, who in their right mind would loan $50,000 to an 18 year-old to take courses in Grievance Studies at Whatsamatta U?
