Kim Dancy wrote for CNN about what the GOP tax bill means for higher education:

The highly-anticipated tax reform legislation introduced by GOP leaders this week included bad news for student loan borrowers.

If passed, the bill would eliminate a deduction on interest paid on student loans, a move that has borrowers up in arms. And while the student loan interest deduction could certainly stand to be improved, eliminating it entirely is the wrong approach.
