The country—the workforce, economy, democracy—depends upon the economic mobility of our citizens. As our single best engine for economic mobility, higher education must be accessible and affordable to all students who strive for the opportunity.
Concerns about college affordability and unmanageable debt often keep lower income students from pursing higher education. ISAs can expand access to education opportunity by offering families a financing option that comes with greater assurance and protection. For our country’s least resourced families, a thoughtfully conceived ISA structure offers unmatched protection when earnings are negatively impacted by family responsibilities, unanticipated misfortunes, or other life circumstances.
