White House Office Hours with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is doing a live Q&A on Twitter on Wednesday, June 27th at 2:00 p.m. EDT.  Secretary Duncan will answer your questions about college affordability and the administration’s education policies and priorities.

Here’s how it works:

For the first time ever, Americans owe more in student loans than in credit card debt. That’s why we’ve been calling on Congress to keep interest rates low on student loans.

If Congress doesn’t act, interest rates on federal student loans will double on July 1 and more than 7 million students around the country will rack up an average of $1,000 of extra debt each.
