The publisher of Texas textbooks has called on students to “stop being victimized” of student debts by the increasing costs of college.
The publisher of the Texas textbook, Emancipation History, released a statement Thursday, which said that students are being “targeted by a predatory industry that exploits our students.”
The statement, which was obtained by Mashable, comes as a growing number of universities and colleges are taking action to reduce student loan debt, which is a growing burden for many students.
It also comes as some states have passed legislation that aims to allow students to defer their loans at the time of their graduation.
The Texas textbook said that if students continue to make payments, they will become “loaned” from the federal government, and they will have to repay them over time.
The statement also said that “the American Dream is at stake.”
The Texas Education Agency has been reviewing its loan repayment program, and it is working to make the program more transparent, the statement said.
Students will not be able to defer loans for life, the agency said, but they will be able reduce their payments to a percentage of the remaining balance.
The Emancation History textbook, which comes out this summer, has been a staple for students for decades.
The Texas textbook says that students should stop being victims of student loan repayments by the growing costs of the school.
The textbook is available for pre-ordered on Amazon and other online retailers.
