Abstract

This study examines attitudes of Americans toward borrowing to finance educational expenses over the period from 1959 to 1983. The study finds that overall Americans have had a consistently favorable view toward educational loans. However, not all Americans share this general enthusiasm for borrowing. People from low-income backgrounds, in particular, are less likely to have a positive attitude toward borrowing to finance educational expenses than are people from middle- or upper-income backgrounds.
