Pay-it-Forward Student Loan Program

Establish a program through which the state will provide low-interest student loans for degrees in high-demand majors. Graduates repay loans based on actual salary after graduation (as salary increases, so do payments). Graduates fund the current students. (Think "Habitats for Humanity", except education-based.)

Oppose PA SB 1275

The proposed bill by Dinniman and Tomlinson would allow schools in the PASSHE system to succeed and become state related schools like Penn State, Lincoln....This would cripple the PASSHE system and make education at them deteriorate and costs rise to unaffordable.
