Lauren Asher is the president of Asher Policy Consulting. We first met in 2004. 

She is a policy expert in student loans for low-income students and families. 

Lauren breaks down several misconceptions. Did you know going to school part-time and attending community colleges are always cost-effective to low-income families? 

Really? I was just as surprised as you are. 

According to the CNBC, "Roughly 70 percent of grads leave college with student debt, and over 44 million Americans hold a total of $1.4 trillion in student loan debt." This episode is relevant to all of us.
