It sure sounds like you got royally screwed. But if there is any good news here it is the loans could be fully discharged in bankruptcy. You see, I doubt the school was eligible for federal student loans so it was probably a private student loan you were saddled with.
Should all high school students be college and career ready? Is there space in career and technical education for college, career and vocational education? Can college preparatory education be aligned with career education?
