Students in Debt: 'Can't Pay, Won't Pay, Don't Pay' | The Nation

We shouldn't strike

This is a really bad idea. That “professor” doesn’t get it and should go back to class. Most of us paying or struggling to pay prefer to remain on the right side of debt—do the paperwork and keep fees or penalties from occurring. From this moral high ground of trying the best we can—we clamor for debt forgiveness. We disagree with the debt, but I don’t believe this debt strike will succeed because we’re already working on the Forgive Student Loan Debt petition and HR365 and by the way, “Occupy Student Debt” is a title already taken by a group presenting personal stories online too.
