Student Debt Blame Game

Jordan Weissman over at the Atlantic wants to know which colleges are to blame for the explosive growth of student debt.  He notes that public disinvestment is driving up debt at public schools (which generate the lion’s share of debt because they educate the majority of students) but that for-profits have the highest rates of default.  And don’t worry, he points the finger at private non-profits that have failed to rein in costs, too.  Apparently, there is plenty of blame to go around.
