Nation's Teachers Vow To Take Out New Student Loans To Pay For Classroom
By Cyril McRobotface
WASHINGTON—Saying they were determined to pay back the debt they had taken on as a state-paid employee, a group of teachers at a Washington, D.C. elementary school vowed Monday to take out a new student loan to pay for their classroom. “We’re doing our part,” said teacher of the year Karen Stapley, who would be able to refinance the $3,750 she has already taken out on her own after she and her husband paid off their personal mortgage. “A few of us borrowed money to bring in a new student, and we can do a pretty good job financing the rest. It’s just like the student loan thing.” At press time, a group of administrators was standing by to help should any students need a loan modification.
