Editorial: Serving Students, Not Lenders
Except for a lucky few, paying for college isn't easy. Judging from how long it has taken, neither is
reforming how the government provides the loans that make higher education affordable to millions. Yet
Wednesday, as the House considers a bill that promises to save taxpayers billions of dollars, it's clear that
the right choice is to vote yes.

Obama's Student-Loan Plan: A Government Takeover Few Can Argue With
As the House holds hearings and looks likely to pass a student-loan bill this week, it's clear that the
education overhaul is not going to be the high-pitched battle that opponents and the White House once
expected it to be.

Moody's Investors Service?s latest report on the state of higher education finance, issued Tuesday, said that

Overseas Study Is Down, and the Economy Takes the Blame
For the first time in more than a decade, American colleges are reporting a drop in the number of students
traveling overseas to study, and the economy is to blame. Nearly 60 percent of colleges and independent
study-abroad providers surveyed by the Forum on Education Abroad said enrollments had fallen from the
previous year. In another sign of stress for the programs, 60 percent of respondents said their budgets had
been cut in the past year.

Steep Hill to Climb
There is widespread alignment among politicians, many policy experts and foundations that support higher
education that the United States must drastically increase the proportion of Americans who enroll in and
complete college -- now a centerpiece of the Obama administration's agenda. Without significant intervention,
