Next week is going to be pretty fantastic. Now, I know what you’re thinking—Memorial Day, three-day weekend, barbecues, and lounging pool-side. But that’s not what I’m talking about. Next week, on May 31st, there are going to be not one but two Blueprint webinars!
Student loans are in the news again. This time, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has announced that her department is rescinding some policies issued by the Obama administration.
