    It says he borrowed money to pay for school, that doesn’t mean it was in the form of official student loans.

    It could be a whole bunch of unsecured debt from multiple sources and therefore can be discharged by bankruptcy.

    If we would quit giving out this easy student loan money the price of college would go down because a of kids wouldn't go to college, and a lot of useless degrees wouldn't be out there either. Also a lot of kids who don't need to go to college wouldn't go. Then you have these cheap online, and once a night for a year and you get your degree schools. Degree mills, pay to play schools, schools that just want to make money. Just my opinion.

    I dunno what the problem is but I know tuition pays for the "Diversity Managers." sports programs and other sundry jobs and programs they can come up with-and they increase tuition every year and the poor student struggles to pay tuition, books etc and the student isn't even involved in activities that he or she pay for thru tuition. And I haven't even mentioned the failure to teach pertinent subjects in which the instructor has a host of personal opinions that forge young minds that isn't subject-related.

    There is relatively new case law that says otherwise in the 5th circuit.

    Just a reminder that "government " money is the people's money. A student loan is money borrowed from taxes We the People have paid. Money We the People worked hard to get and don't appreciate being frittered away.

    Good for him. The modern "education" establishment is predatory and while this case may not be an instance of that behavior, I'd like to see more people realize the lack of value in many degrees. More importantly, the overvaluation of most degrees. Very few degrees are remotely worth the modern cost of them.

    Would have been "gooder" for him to realize the lack of value before signing a contract and then weaseling out of it. He wasn't coerced into signing, it was voluntary, and therefore not predatory.
