Education loan payoff

Organized by: Tonya Rutkowski

I went back to college at age 40 to get a teaching license in special education. After working for 10 years in public schools I was "RIF'd" due to budget cuts. I owe $80K in loans and have tried numerous ways to qualify for loan forgiveness or debt reduction programs but I don't qualify. It seems the programs are intended for younger students, not those of us who were career changers. I do not regret for one minute spending my life helping these kids. I've loved every minute of it, I just wish that I could reduce the loan balance so I can someday retire and continue working with kids in a volunteer basis .
