This is the VOA special english education report. Today we talk more about the costs of higher education in the US. If you missed last week's report, you can find it at VOA special english .com. Foreign students who need financial aid generally have to seek it from the school itself, or their own government or employer. If you follow the news, then you know that president obama recently signed health care reform legislation. But one of the two bills he signed into law also made unrelated changes in the federal student loan program. These will require new loans to come directly from the department of education. The department already makes these federally guaranteed loans for American citizens and permanent legal residents. But since 1993, it has also paid private lenders to provide them. Now as of July 1st, all new loans will go through the direct loan program only. Officials say the new law will save the government 61 billion dollars over ten years and is to use more than half of the savings to provide more federal * grants to needy students. A few billions will also go to schools that traditionally serves minorities and to help two year community colleges. David D is a senior vice president of the American Association of Community Colleges. Now everybody in a higher education benefits from almost all these bills the new law will reduce the most that borrowers must repay each year from 15% of their income to 10%. And the longest repayment period will be shortened from 25 years. Any remaining debt will be forgiven after 20 years or 10 if borrowers enter public service. Supporters in higher education said the final bill did not go far enough. Public and opponents called it an unnecessary government take over of a private industry. Another criticism was that the financial service industry could lose about 30,000 jobs. The department of education reported last year that about 2 thirds of graduates from 4 year college had student load debt. The average was about 23 thousand dollars. And that's the VOA special english education report written by Nancy S. You can discuss education and other subjects on our facebook page at voa learning english. And you can find transcripts and podcasts  at voa special english .com. I'm Steve Ember.
