Regarding Dean Foust's commentary "Student loans ain't broke. Don't fix 'em" (Finance, Apr. 5), my two children, who were able to get into Vassar and Earlham despite going to inner-city schools, currently have between $10,000 and $12,000 in debt through guaranteed student loans and national direct student loans. They would pay no higher interest on a car loan than on these loans.

I think the situation is scandalous. The government is not supporting our children or our educational system. Education loans ought to be a lot less burdensome.
