Maybe you got a student loan or two to get through college.  A lot of people do. 

But a TRILLION dollars? 

That's the current debt load of all the people in the United States who took out student loans. 

Joel and Eric Best, a father-and-son writing team, examine how we got here in their book The Student Loan Mess. 

The Bests combine their skills--sociologist and former banker--to zero in on the many contributing factors.
