Americans for Prosperity just launched a new campaign on Higher Education Reform called – Rock the Ivory Tower. They will be putting out weekly videos and have a facebook and twitter account set up. The goal is to get Texans engaged in the issue so we can help make college affordable, accessible and transparent for college students and taxpayers. Right now, the average student graduates with between $22,000-$27,000 in student loan debt; and, nationally student loan debt has now surpassed credit card debt at almost $1 trillion. We need to get involved.
Here’s their first one – a man on the street video taken on the UT Campus.
You can find them on twitter @RocktheTower and facebook
