New Hampshire Grads are First in the Nation - in Debt
The phrase “first in the nation” is the shorthand we use for talking about the New Hampshire presidential primary coming before any other.
New Hampshire is first among states in other ways, too. Some are good – like having the lowest rate of child poverty among states. Some are not so good – like having the highest student debt load in America.
Reporter Amanda Loder has been digging through the details of student debt as part of our collaboration with NPR, State Impact New Hampshire. She talks with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about what she's learned.
