Policy in Action

In 2015, the average college student graduated with over $33,000 in student debt. As federal and state proposals arise on how to deal with this surmounting crisis, state legislators around the country are scrambling for ideas on how to mitigate the issue. State legislators are challenged to develop new and innovative methods to ensure students in K-12 are meeting rigorous academic standards in 2016. Another looming issue many legislators are considering is the growing problem of sexual assault on college campuses.
