Watch the NIE video of the week: Million Student March. What is the march about? What consequences does failure to pay of a student loan have? What are some strategies students can use to leave college with less debt? Read these two articles from the Tampa Bay Times for some ideas:
Financial Literacy Standards SS.912.FL.4.8:Examine the fact that failure to repay a loan has significant consequences for borrowers such as negative entries on their credit report, repossession of property (collateral), garnishment of wages, and the inability to obtain loans in the future.
SS.912.FL.4.9:Explain that consumers who have difficulty repaying debt can seek assistance through credit counseling services and by negotiating directly with creditors.
