Scholarslip: A documentary about the student debt crisis

Identified to speak up regarding America's crumbling college system, 3 pupils at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite Institution of Journalism rallied the voices of an indebted generation.

The 26-minute production takes a look at the trainee financial debt crisis in the United States and also delves into problems local to Arizona. Illustrated with the voices of trainee debtors along with college as well as government policymakers, "Scholarslip" explores 5 critical concerns: raising costs of tuition; weakening high quality of college; diminishing value of a college level in the job market; trainee dependence on state as well as government monetary assistance; as well as the impacts on personal lives as well as aspirations. Lancial, Molina and also Stein got in and also documented the lives of 3 university students, each experiencing various personal and monetary struggles yet sharing a typical need to seek a college level. Also featured are statements from John Kavanaugh, a representative in the Arizona legislature; Kent Hopkins, the Vice Provost of Registration at Arizona State College; and also Natalia Abrams, a founder of Pupil Financial debt Situation as well as Occupy Colleges. "Scholarslip" provides a generation under siege, testing a relatively out-of-control system that is sending millions into interminable financial obligation.
