10 Student Loan Reform Leaders: #1 President Obama, Three Others, Then . . Me?

Check out my reaction to being named a leader by OnlineCollege.org in the fight for student loan reform over at my column, "Seriously Subversive," at Hypervocal. (I'm number 5; the President is no. 1). What a day, and what a surprise! And my editor's note of congratulations - at the end of my short piece at Hyper -  made me blush! Such kindness.

Here's the full list on OnlineCollege.org's piece about student loan reformers.

It's an honor to be listed. It means a lot to me, because I've been waging this battle for many years now - and guess what? The fight continues on behalf of the indentured educated class this coming year. Much, much more needs to be done to help distressed borrowers and those who have defaulted on their loans. There is not one solution to the problem. The crisis needs a multi-solution approach, something I've shared with numerous Congressional leaders and their staffers on my many visits to DC.

Barack should only be listed as number one in the following category:
