Rising Student Loan Debt: Is It Worth It?

On Ringgit and Sense today we delve into the growing mountain of student debt. Dr. Amirul Rafiq Abu Rahim, a Research Associate at the Khazanah Research Institute, sheds light on whether tertiary education truly facilitates upward mobility, the disproportionate burden of educational debt on lower-income households,  and whether there is a case for universal student loan debt forgiveness.
