    We have a student loan crisis here in the United States. Student loan debt in aggregate, an unsustainable bubble of government inspired debt mania, has sky rocketed over the last 10 years nearly 400 percent. The total student loan debt is now nearing 1 trillion dollars with over 10% of that in default or delinquency and much of the rest teetering on collapse.

    The government makes these loans available to all manner of students attending a wide variety of schools. Many of these loans are extended to students paying exorbitant tuition rates to traditional non-profit schools rewired and then transformed into “paper mills” or to a whole new category of for profit schools many with even more exorbitant tuition rates and seemingly in indirect proportion to the value received.

    Students pay excessively high tuition rates for watered down curricula at a plethora of institutions offering degrees that don’t meet the smell test when compared to the value associated historically with the attainment of a 4-year degree. Many students even after graduation struggle to properly read, write, or do arithmetic as would be expected of a fully educated graduate of a traditional university.

    Many profit and non-profit educational institutions are drinking at the government loan spout while at the same time “dummying down” the path to a degree. Government money is fueling the demand and the corresponding tuition inflation is creating a student loan bubble of catastrophic proportions. Many employers no longer value these degrees unless they are from certain very high-level schools; the kind of schools that even student loans from the government can’t cover.

    Indentured servitude is a good metaphor for what is happening with the student loan fiasco; this is a truly abusive system that takes advantage of those with high hopes and trying to improve their lives. At least an indentured servant, historically, could learn a craft or a trade that was with them for life; what are these folks getting but membership in a new class of debtor?

    With the passage of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 student loan debt public or private is no longer dischargeable in bankruptcy court. Many of our younger citizens now carry their student loan debt around with them like the proverbial, “ball and chain” looking for a job from employers many of whom no longer value the degree. What is next? Will they bring back a “debtors prison”?

    Our once very fine university system has been severely damaged by this phenomenon. Not all loans are bad and not all schools are “paper mills” but the trend is clear and this will end badly unless this system is rehabilitated.

    Many people find themselves stuck in a dead end job and although they dream of having a terrific career, they cannot afford to stop working in order to go back to school and earn the diploma they need. Men and women who want to earn a diploma while holding down a full or part-time job should find out more about distance education. People can complete a high quality educational program by taking correspondence or online courses from home.

    The Benefits of Distance Education

    Distance education allows people to complete their lessons in their spare time. They can work on assignments before or after work and they do not have to worry about traveling to and from school. People can take the courses necessary to complete their high school education or they can take career courses that will give them the knowledge and skills necessary to start a brand new profession. Most people do not realize how many terrific diploma programs are currently available online. There are dozens of excellent correspondence courses available that can help a person start a brand new career. Men and women can take courses that help them to become an auto mechanic, interior decorator, florist, website designer or travel agent.

    People who take correspondence courses can study at their own pace. Although distance education requires focus and discipline, many people prefer studying on their own rather than in a classroom setting. People who have trouble concentrating in a crowded classroom often find it easier to focus on their correspondence courses. Studying from home is especially convenient for parents. Working parents can hold down a job while earning their diploma and stay-at-home parents can save money on daycare costs by completing assignments online while their children are sleeping in the evening. Parents do not have to worry about missing classes when their children are sick because they can complete their lessons whenever it is convenient to do so. Once mom or dad completes their distance education program, they will be ready to begin a new rewarding career.

    How Distance Education Works

    People who enroll in a distance education program receive their course materials by mail. The educational institute sends lessons, textbooks and workbooks to the students home address. Once a student has completed a lesson, they are responsible for mailing their work to the educational institute or their teacher for evaluation.

    Those who choose online education complete their coursework on a computer. Online education is a great option for anyone who has a computer and high-speed Internet access. People who take online courses still receive their lessons and textbooks through the mail. Personal assistance is available to all students and students can email their teacher to ask any questions they have about their assignments. While some online educators require students to take a supervised examination at the end of their course, other educational institutes offer open-book exams that students can complete from their home computer.

    Identifying the number of financial aid programs that one may be eligible for is only a start of the long-lasting, demanding and challenging application process. There is a set of tips at the governmental sites and various forums on what scholarships to choose and how to choose the best variants possible, but there is still a threat that the student may turn out to be a victim of the scholarship scam. The ways to avoid the disappointment and to secure oneself from internet financial scammers are outlined in the present article.

    How Can One Secure Him- or Herself from Financial Scams in Scholarships?

    1. The first and the most important rule on choosing a valid scholarship plan is to assess the possibilities offered by a certain sponsor realistically. There are some cases in which the sponsors offer very good conditions without any specific eligibility criteria. They may offer to solve all students problems and pay for everything, but in fact they will perform only a fraud with his or her direct participation. One has to be absolutely objective when reading the benefits offered by the scholarship program and realizing whether he or she is actually worth it.

    2. The second rule that has to be observed to secure oneself from a fraud is not to pay anything for obtaining scholarship. The essence of any scholarship is to provide financial aid; thus, there is no need to ask for money from those to whom the money will be later given. In case obtaining a scholarship requires financial costs, it is a definite scam.

    3. Finally, all information has to be transparent and clear. The sponsors offering scholarships have to have all documents certifying their legality and should possess permission for provision of financial aid. Hence, one should consult the legal sources to understand whether the scholarship is real.
