Was expecting more
30 November 2014 | by anelson8689See all my reviews

I know a lot about this subject because I've written a few papers on the issue of student loan debt... this movie taught me absolutely nothing I didn't already know, and like others have stated, offers no solutions for solving this problem (which are pretty clear-cut, by the way). This documentary had very little direction, wasn't particularly engaging, and didn't really serve much of a purpose. And it also made no mention of the model other countries use to fund higher education, which was pretty surprising. My advice: skip the documentary and do your own research. You'll learn a lot more that way, and probably in less than 90 minutes.
