As college costs rise, some see cause for alarm in rising levels of student loan debt. However, a new study finds that students who take out loans do better in school.

Lesley Turner joins EdNext Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss that new study, “The Benefits of Borrowing: Evidence on student loan debt and community college attainment,” which she co-authored with Benjamin M. Marx.
