The Student Loan Forgiveness Program isn’t Working


Ninety-nine percent of loan-forgiveness requests under that new Temporary Expanded Public Service Loan Forgiveness (TEPSLF) were rejected during the program’s first year, from May 2018 to May 2019.

It spent only $27 million of the $700 million Congress set aside for the expansion.
