The School of Education at U-W-Platteville is offering to help pay off the loans taken out by its students. The Loan Repayment Assistance Program applies to federal student, parent PLUS, and private alternative loans. Incoming freshmen students majoring in elementary and middle education are being told if they graduate then the school will pay off a portion of their loans until they are making a salary of at least $48,000 a-year. This is reportedly the first offer of its kind at any public institution in the U-S. It’s aimed at helping some rural school districts find teaching candidates.
