Student Loan Debt Reform - I Think I Have A Thought


If you ask a college student what's the biggest thing
They think that their higher education's gonna bring
I'd be more than willing now to offer you a bet;
10 to 1 their answer is a huge amount of debt.

(My 2 sons are fortunate 'cause we can help them out.
Lucky them, because with recent grades I sorta doubt
They'll be getting scholarships to any decent schools.)
Congress passed a compromise, but I don't think it fools

Students into thinking all their problems have been solved.
As the problem grows, my own position has evolved.
Had a driveway moment and I think I have a thought...
Let's expand Academies where Sciences are taught.

I was in the Navy and my father is a grad...
I am here to tell you that the brightest of our best
Choose to serve their country and give pocketbooks a rest.

Why don't we train scientists and doctors in this way?
Give them educations and use services to pay?
Industries are begging for some well trained engineers.
We are wasting talent.  We've been doing it for years.

Families who can't afford to pay the soaring cost
For a college education - don't... Their kid gets lost.
Think of all the minds that languish in the talent pool.
Time that we recruit them to a U.S. Service School.
