As the country moves beyond the depths of the pandemic, many are wondering what’s next for student debt. The Department of Education has already taken steps to rehabilitate troubled student loans and has provided $19 billion in targeted relief for hundreds of thousands of borrowers by streamlining existing rules. The COVID-era repayment pause continues even as household balance sheets have largely recovered, and administration officials and policy experts are considering broader student loan forgiveness. Where do we go from here?
