America’s collective student loan debt now stands at more than $1.5 trillion. For some perspective, that’s more than the entire GDP of Spain or Sweden or any of the 54 countries in Africa.

Apart from mortgages, student loans are the biggest source of personal debt in this country, more than car loans and credit card bills. That’s a staggering amount of debt. It’s enough to distort and cripple the U.S. economy. It’s enough to stunt the life prospects of an entire generation of young people.

If you’re wondering why the majority of Americans under 30 say they prefer socialism, debt is a major reason. Student loans are killing them, and they never go away. Thanks to extensive lobbying efforts here in Washington, student loans, unlike other forms of debt, cannot be erased by bankruptcy.

The student loan crisis is a modern problem. Just 13 years ago, the average new college graduate owed $20,000 in student loans. Today, that number has jumped to $37,000. Student debt is rising far faster than the earnings of American workers, the very earnings that are supposed to justify student loans in the first place.

For professional degrees, the number goes far higher than that. The average law school graduate carries more than $110,000 in student loan debt. For new doctors, the burden is nearly $200,000 by the time they finish medical school.

Overall, two million Americans owe more than a $100,000 in student loans. Imagine starting life that far behind. Many of the people paying off college loan debt never even earned a degree. They tried to improve their lives by attending college, and they wound up poorer and in bondage. And not just a few of them — millions and millions of them. What are the effects of this?

Well, the damage is far more profound than anything caused by climate change. Young people are broke. As a result, they’re delaying the vital life transitions that were automatic for earlier generations.

In 1990, a quarter of American adults lived with their parents. Today, the number has risen to 35 percent. The home ownership rate for millennials dropped eight points from the generation before. Unable to afford homes, millennials are getting married later and less often. They’re also having fewer kids. It’s not because they don’t want children. According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans who want children has not changed in 25 years. And yet fewer children are being born, thanks in part to rising debt levels, America’s middle class cannot replace itself.

That’s why we’re told we must import millions of new workers from abroad. Young Americans want homes and families. Helping them get those things ought to be our top priority as a country. We can’t begin until we reform the student loan system. Why haven’t we done that yet?

Well, a hugely powerful lobby stands in the way — colleges and universities. Their lobbyists swarm Washington. Not surprisingly, these are the people who benefit from student loan debt. Drive through rural America, and you see how well they’ve done. In a sea of poverty and despair, you will notice gated islands of affluence. These are colleges.

Colleges control access to the credentials that we are all convinced are necessary and mandatory to achieve success in the modern economy. It’s a racket. These are the gatekeepers of modern society and they are ripping off every kid who passes through those gates.

Outside the gates, people are unemployed and dying of opioid overdoses. Inside the gates, it’s like the Ritz on South Beach. If you haven’t been to an American university lately, see it for yourself. Everything is new. There’s been a building boom underway for decades on campuses, all of it funded by debt that is destroying a generation of American kids.

A hundred schools now have endowments over a billion dollars. They are hedge funds with schools attached. What have colleges done with this money? Well, they’ve hired massive staffs of like-minded people for one thing. From 1987 to 2012, the number of administrators on college campuses more than doubled. That’s far bigger than the increase of actual students going to college. College administrators routinely make six-figure salaries. What exactly do they do for that money? Not a single thing that makes this a better country.

College presidents often get seven-figure salaries. Their pay is probably the only thing in America rising as fast as tuition costs. Academic publishers are getting rich from all of this, too — from the debt boom. Prices of textbooks have tripled in the past 20 years. Printing hasn’t gotten more expensive; non-academic books are cheaper now than they were two decades ago. But students are a captive market, and they are being exploited ruthlessly. Nobody says a word about it.

So to sum up, young people in this country get poorer every year. College administrators, probably the least impressive group in the country, are getting richer at their expense. It’s not a law of the universe that this has to happen. It’s a product of policy and of the incentives our society has created over time.

Right now, the federal government allows young people to take out an almost unlimited amount in student loans. Colleges know this, of course, and they hike their tuition to capture as much of that money as they can. Young people have little choice but to go along with it.

Colleges control access to the credentials that we are all convinced are necessary and mandatory to achieve success in the modern economy. It’s a racket. These are the gatekeepers of modern society and they are ripping off every kid who passes through those gates.

What’s the solution? Well, here’s one. Have colleges co-sign the loans. And why shouldn’t they? If you and I enter into a partnership in business and we succeed, we share the rewards. But we also share the risk. If we fail, we’re both on the hook for that. That’s how honest arrangements work. College loans don’t work that way. Colleges get rich, no matter what happens to the kids. The kids are on their own.

If students get a degree and a decent job and repay their loans, that’s great. But if they drop out of college, or their degrees turn out to be worthless, as so many are, and they can’t repay what they have borrowed, so what? The college doesn’t care. They’ve got no stake in the outcome. Colleges get all of the benefit and none of the risk. That is the definition of a scam. It’s amazing it could even be legal. It should not be legal.

Maybe Congress could take 20 minutes from the Russia hoax and posturing about climate change and fix one of the actual problems, one of the biggest problems this country faces. Pass a law forcing colleges to share the liability on defaulted student loans. What would be the argument against that? That colleges can’t afford it? That taxpayers should shoulder all the risk so that Wesleyan or Brown can build another diversity and inclusion center and hire more useless overpaid Deans of Sensitivity?

It’s kind of hard to make that case out loud. It’s too stupid. Congress should act now. The student loan system is going to collapse. That is inevitable. Before it does, let’s be very clear about who has been profiting from it.

A politics professor whose op-ed in The New York Times in October helped spark protests among liberal students at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., now claims the college and faculty have left him to fight the backlash alone.

Samuel J. Abrams, who has a PhD from Harvard University and an AB from Stanford University, told Fox News via email Monday evening: “Faculty have to hold the line on free speech and promote discourse. That didn’t happen at Sarah Lawrence, and I hope that my story is a warning that is heard around the country.”

Students claimed they were offended by the supposed “anti-Blackness, anti-LGBTQ+, and anti-woman bigotry” of Abrams, professor of politics at Sarah Lawrence College, and visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, and staged a large sit-in. They also presented demands, such as a “tenure review.”

LORI LOUGHLIN APPEARED ‘ARROGANT’ IN COURT WHILE FELICITY HUFFMAN LOOKED ‘MORE GENUINE,’ SAYS SKETCH ARTIST

He said Monday evening that his philosophy was not an attack on students: “Viewpoint diversity is asking that multiple viewpoints are considered on campus and in the classroom. So that means rather than simply attack capitalism and free markets without a deep understanding of history and teach socialism, we also teach the value of markets, choice and individualism.”

He said his ideology has been to teach students the realities of adult life: “Rather than teach that government needs to get bigger, and is the solution to poverty and improving the welfare of Americans, and this is often the only view taught, we need to also teach how capitalism has lifted millions up, and allowed markets to make the nation efficient.”

Abrams said 40 professors endorsed the demand list, and 12 percent of the faculty “endorsed the students’ demand to challenge my tenure and my right to free speech and the expression of ideas.”

The college didn’t return Fox News’ request for comment.

“…With the (students’) latest attempt to attack academic freedom, the Sarah Lawrence faculty could have redeemed themselves and been galvanized to support free expression. Instead, they opted for silence — and, what’s worse, many of them were supportive of the student protesters’ demands,” Abrams wrote in The Spectator over the weekend.

He also wrote about the repercussions he received for the original opinion piece last fall: “There was a national media storm in which I was slandered and defamed, my family’s safety was threatened, and my personal property was destroyed on campus.”

In the Times, Abrams wrote about original survey data of a “nationally representative sample of roughly 900 ‘student-facing’ administrators” which found “liberal staff members outnumber their conservative counterparts by the astonishing ratio of 12-1. Only 6 percent of campus administrators identified as conservative to some degree, while 71 percent classified themselves as liberal or very liberal.”

He added in the October opinion piece, “It’s no wonder so much of the nonacademic programming on college campuses is politically one-sided. … It appears that a fairly liberal student body is being taught by a very liberal professoriate — and socialized by an incredibly liberal group of administrators.”

An elementary school in Portland, Ore., allegedly allowed parents to bid on their child’s next teacher, according to reports.

Fox 12 reported that an unnamed PTA member said the auction was meant to fill a financial gap.

The news outlet reported that 50 percent of Markham Elementary School’s students come from underserved communities, and 46.1 percent of them receive free or reduced-price lunch.

“I don’t think it was a good idea; I do know, however, that the intent was really good,” said mother Sarah Simons.

“We don’t have any bad teachers,” Cari Carr, another parent, said. “There are no teachers that people are trying to avoid.”

Of the $52,000 raised in the auction, $1,600 came from six parents who bid on a teacher, Fox 12 said.

The Associated Press and television networks NBC and HBO could be the next three entities sued over their handling of the viral video featuring Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann, his co-counsel told Fox News on Tuesday.

Todd McMurtry revealed the potential upcoming legal targets during an interview with Fox News just one day after a massive $275 million suit was filed against CNN due to its coverage of the January confrontation between Sandmann — wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat — and Native American activist, Nathan Phillips.

“Our plan is to come out with an additional lawsuit every few weeks or months. We have to issue opportunities for these news organizations to provide retractions,” McMurtry told the "Todd Starnes Radio Show." "But right now we’re looking very carefully at NBC, AP, HBO. And again, HBO is primarily because they carry Bill Maher’s disgusting comments about Nicholas Sandmann. So those probably are the next three defendants."

SANDMANN, FAMILY SUE CNN FOR $275M IN COVINGTON CATHOLIC CONTROVERSY

Maher referred to Sandmann as a “little pr—” during the Jan. 27 episode of his show, “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

"I don’t blame the kid, the smirk-face kid," Maher said. "I blame lead poisoning and bad parenting. And, oh yeah, I blame the f—ing kid, what a little pr—. Smirk face, like that’s not a d— move at any age to stick your face in this elderly man.”

COVINGTON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT’S LEGAL TEAM SUES WASHINGTON POST

Maher then made a crude joke about the abuse of children that has taken place in the Catholic Church, saying: “You know, I don’t spend a lot of time, I must tell you, around Catholic school children, but I do not get what Catholic priests see in these kids.”

In addition to the CNN suit, Sandmann’s legal team also launched legal action against the Washington Post.

McMurtry told Fox News the goal of the suits is to change the “mainstream media’s” behavior.

”Clearly what we want to do is stop them from behaving in a way that discards all journalistic integrity,” he said. “Here they didn’t investigate. They took something off of Twitter and put it right out into the media.”

CONSERVATIVE LEADERS DEMAND APOLOGY FOR MEDIA TREATMENT OF COVINGTON STUDENTS

The suit against CNN charges that the network "elevated false, heinous accusations of racist conduct" against Sandmann and failed to adhere to "well-established journalistic standards and ethics."

The lawsuit against The Washington Post accuses that outlet of practicing "a modern-day form of McCarthyism" by targeting Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles…to smear a young boy who was, in its view, an acceptable casualty in their war against the president."

The Post has since published an editor’s note admitting subsequent information either contradicted or failed to confirm accounts relayed in its initial article about the video. The editor’s note was not satisfactory to Sandmann’s legal team, however.

Sandmann, a junior at Covington in Kentucky, became a target for outrage after the January video surfaced. The 16-year-old was one of a group of students from Covington attending the anti-abortion March for Life in Washington, D.C., while Phillips was attending the Indigenous Peoples’ March on the same day.

Sandmann and the Covington students were initially accused of initiating the confrontation, but other videos and the students’ own statements showed that they were verbally accosted by a group of black street preachers who were shouting insults at them and the Native Americans. Sandmann and Phillips have both said they were trying to defuse the situation.

Students at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., are protesting a politics prof whose op-ed in The New York Times in October has struck them as excessively conservative, according to reports.

The students claimed they were offended by his supposed “anti-Blackness, anti-LGBTQ+, and anti-woman bigotry” and staged a large sit-in. They also presented demands, such as a “tenure review” of the professor, Samuel J. Abrams.

"In addition, the college must issue a statement condemning the harm that Abrams has caused to the college community, specifically queer, black and female students," the students demanded. The college must also apologize "for its refusal to protect marginalized students wounded by his op-ed and the ignorant dialogue that followed. Abrams must issue a public apology to the broader SLC community and cease to target black people, queer people and women."

Famed Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said a nationwide college admission cheating scandal will go down as one of the “great scandals of the 21st Century” and that Tuesday’s news is just  the “tip of the iceberg.”
 
“This is the worst scandal involving elite universities in the history of the United States,” Dershowitz said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”

“This is really one of the great scandals of the 21st Century. Having said that, I just think it’s just the tip of the iceberg.”
 
Dershowitz talked about the significance of the more than four dozen people charged Tuesday who allegedly paid up to $6.5 million to secure their children placement into elite universities.

“Remember this doesn’t involve the super, super rich. The super, super rich buy buildings for the university. They donate hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars," Dershowitz told host Melissa Francis.

"They don’t have to worry about their kids getting in. This involves the very rich, the people who can’t quite afford to give a building but can afford to spend 5 or 6 million dollars.”
 
He added: “We will see other mini-scandals involving contributions to the university, coaches who are prepared to stretch the rules."

NEW REPORT AIMS TO PINPOINT NATION’S MOST ‘ABSURD’ COLLEGE COURSES

 This is really one of the great scandals of the 21st Century.  Having said that, I just think it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

— Attorney Alan Dershowitz

Dershowitz went on to blame universities and colleges for ‘abolishing grades’ which he feels is the fundamental cause of the scandal.
 
“If we went back to the situation that occurred when I started teaching at Harvard almost 60 years ago this couldn’t work because these students would fail out,” Dershowitz said. “It didn’t pay for them to come into a college because they wouldn’t make it through if they didn’t have the academic resources to make it.”
 
“But today nobody fails, and today nobody get bad grades.  Nobody even gets C’s and in many universities, they’ve abolished grades,” Dershowitz added.

The scam allegedly placed students into top colleges such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, University of Southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas.

William Rick Singer, from California, had been investigated for over a year and is alleged to have used bribes to help parents gain their child admissions, according to court documents.

Singer, authorities said will plead guilty to racketeering for running the charity, Key Worldwide Foundation, which received $25 million in total to guarantee the admissions as a front to run the scam.

Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are also among those charged.

Hayden Williams, 26, who was assaulted while helping recruit conservatives at U-C Berkeley, told Fox News that places of higher learning are aggressively hostile to diversity of thought.

CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST ASSAULTED AT UC-BERKELEY CAMPUS DURING RECRUITMENT DRIVE

“I can tell you firsthand, over the past few months I’ve been doing this, and this is a very disturbing trend at multiple universities across the country,” he said Monday on “The Todd Starnes Show” about the xenophobia that conservatives are experiencing on college campuses.

Two men last Tuesday approached his table at the University of California, Berkeley where the activist was recruiting members to the conservative group Turning Point USA, although he is not a member himself. An argument ensued and Williams held up his cell phone and began filming the two men who were allegedly harassing him.

One of the two men knocked over the table, police said, and then punched Williams several times, causing injuries to his face. Much of the incident was captured on a witness’ cellphone.

Berkeley police told Fox News Monday afternoon that there is no new information to report.

Williams, who is not a student, is a field representative of the Leadership Institute, and in that role helps train and organize conservative students on college campuses across the country. He had been invited by Turning Point USA, which is in the midst of establishing a chapter at Berkeley, to man the table at the plaza on campus.

Williams reiterated that he will not be intimidated into staying quiet about his conservative views, and will continue being an advocate dedicated to traditional beliefs and values.

Donald Trump on Wednesday cheered the news that attorneys representing a high school student involved in a now-infamous confrontation with a Native American activist last month are suing The Washington Post.

The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Kentucky, accused the Post of practicing "a modern-day form of McCarthyism" by targeting Nicholas Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles … to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president."

The suit is seeking $250 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

COVINGTON HIGH STUDENT’S LEGAL TEAM SUES WASHINGTON POST

In an early morning tweet Wednesday, Trump threw his support behind Sandmann, writing: “Covington student suing WAPO. Go get them Nick. Fake News!”

Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School, became a target for outrage after a video surfaced in January of him standing face-to-face with a Native American man, Nathan Phillips, while wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat.

Sandmann was one of a group of students from Covington attending the anti-abortion March for Life in Washington, D.C., while Phillips was attending the Indigenous Peoples’ March on the same day. But while the students were initially portrayed as antagonizing the man, other details soon emerged showing he approached the students, and another group called the Black Hebrew Israelites was instigating with profane comments.

CONSERVATIVE LEADERS DEMAND APOLOGY FOR MEDIA TREATMENT OF COVINGTON STUDENTS

Earlier this month, Sandmann’s attorneys sent preservation letters to more than 50 media organizations, celebrities and politicians — including The Post, The New York Times, CNN, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and actors Alyssa Milano and Jim Carrey — the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.

Last week, investigators hired by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington concluded that the students did not instigate the confrontation with Phillips. Bishop Roger Foys, who initially condemned the students’ behavior, wrote in a letter to parents that they had been "placed in a situation that was at once bizarre and even threatening."

Washington Post spokesperson Kris Coratti told Fox News in an email that the paper was "reviewing a copy of the lawsuit, and we plan to mount a vigorous defense."

A member of the board of trustees at a Pennsylvania college resigned this week after a yearbook photo surfaced that shows him and others dressed as Nazis at a 1980 party.

Bob Garthwait, who graduated from Gettysburg College in 1982, has made significant donations to the school over the years, Harrisburg’s FOX 43 reported.

The photo shows Garthwait holding a plastic cup and wearing a military-style uniform, with a swastika band clearly visible on his left arm. He is standing along with four other students who are similarly dressed, though no swastikas are visible on their attire.

SWASTIKA PAINTED ON DUKE MURAL HONORING SYNAGOGUE VICTIMS

The photo was discovered last week by Cameron Sauers, a history major doing research in the college archives, the Gettysburgian, a student newspaper, reported. According to the Associated Press, fellow history major Hannah Labovitz determined Garthwait’s identity.

Labovitz told the AP that Garthwait’s resignation from the board shows he understands “how serious the situation is.”

“It wasn’t just him — it was the school that allowed this to be in the yearbook and there were zero complaints when it was allowed to be published,” Labovitz said Tuesday.

In a statement, Garthwait said the photo was taken during a “Hogan’s Heroes”-themed fraternity party when he was a sophomore at the school, FOX 43 reported. The reference is to a TV comedy series from the 1960s and 1970s that depicted crafty Allied prisoners of war outwitting bungling Nazi soldiers.

“I understand how disturbing this image is to members of the Gettysburg College community, and especially those who are Jewish,” Garthwait wrote in his statement.

ON HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY, HONOR 6 MILLION MURDERED JEWS BY SHOWING SOLIDARITY WITH JEWS ALIVE TODAY

“I understand how disturbing this image is to members of the Gettysburg College community, and especially those who are Jewish.”

— Bob Garthwait, former trustee, Gettysburg College

“As a sophomore in 1980, I was not fully aware of the significance of those symbols. While this is no excuse, I am deeply embarrassed and regret participating in this event where Nazi symbols were used. As an alumnus, it has been one of my great pleasures to be instrumental in the founding of the Garthwait Leadership Center, which focuses on the values of integrity, respect, and inclusiveness.

“My sincere hope is that our current students will learn from my poor judgement [sic] 38 years ago and be more thoughtful than I was about the impact of their actions on others. I extend my sincere apologies to the entire Gettysburg College community, and I humbly ask for your forgiveness.”

Gettysburg College President Janet Morgan Riggs issued a separate statement:

“Bob has made the decision to step down from the Board of Trustees. Clearly he regrets that he participated in this event and the harm it has caused to our community about which he cares so deeply,” Riggs wrote.

“Conversations will continue with our Board about this situation. My hope is that all of us in the College community will learn from this — that it will inspire compassion for one another and a re-dedication among all of us to creating a climate in which all feel welcome.”

Gettysburg College is a private, four-year liberal arts college of about 2,400 students, located near the Gettysburg Battlefield.

A Wisconsin high school is accused of conducting body shaming activities last March at a cheerleading banquet, during which a coach reportedly gave out Big Booty, Big Boobie and String Bean awards, according to a report in The New York Times.

The Big Boobie Judy award was for the girl with the biggest breasts, The Times reported, and the coach handing out the award joked that the winner  risked a concussion when she ran because of her “enormous boobs.”

The Big Booty Strube award was given to another girl, and the coach presenting the award said: “We love her butt. Everybody loves her butt.”

The String Bean award was given to a freshman girl who, The Times reported, “was so light and skinny.”

Although complaints were made against the school, the American Civil Liberties Union, which on Tuesday sent Kenosha Unified School District a formal warning of a potential lawsuit, said objections were ignored.

The ACLU claims the Wisconsin district “failed to take any meaningful corrective action” in the case.

The ACLU also reported that when the coaches of the cheering squad were confronted, the coach responded: “I honestly don’t feel that I need to explain myself about how we ran our banquet. Actually we have ran it this way for years and have never had a problem.”

Chief Communications Officer Tanya Ruder of the Kenosha unified district said in an email to Fox News Tuesday night: “A clear expectation has been set that awards of this nature are not acceptable and are not to be given at Tremper cheerleading banquets going forward. As for the investigation, we are not at liberty to share personnel matters.”

The Times reported that this year’s cheerleading banquet is next month; cheerleaders and coaches are invited — but parents are not.
