State With Highest Student Debt

It’s a rather dubious honor, being named the number one state for the highest student debt.  That’s the title given to New Hampshire, as the nation’s total student debt has now surpassed credit card debt.  Student debt from loans averages more than 26-thousand 600 per student, and the recession combined with job instability hasn’t helped, nor has the hike in tuition by for-profit colleges.  In New Hampshire, the average student debt is more than 32-thousand 400, with 75-percent of New Hampshire students in debt.
