Loan Forgiveness Training:

The latest NEA Member Benefit research shows that recent graduates are leaving schools with greater and greater debt.  This presentation focuses on how teachers who teach in “high impact schools” can get a portion of their Stafford and Perkins loans forgiven.  In addition, we will cover the basics of the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program which applies to all folks
who work in public service and who have Federal Loans.
