Hypothesis- Anonymousgirl116

  1. Student debts
  2. Student debts should be eliminated. 
  3. Student debts should be eliminated to those who make less than the national average income.
  4. Student debts should be forgiven for those who can not afford to pay them back. 
  5. Many students graduate in debt, people who qualify should receive a lower number to pay back or have it forgiven altogether. 
  6. Because many college students graduate with significant debt, forgiving it for those who qualify would be financially beneficial.

    This is what we call a truism, AnonymousGirl. It does not need to be proved, so it’s not a strong candidate for a Hypothesis. That doesn’t mean you haven’t identified a worthy topic, but you haven’t yet declared the claim you wish to demonstrate.

    If you have any doubts about my reaction, just substitute some terms and see if you can find anything to argue with:
    —Because many homeowners struggle to make their mortgage payments, forgiving mortgages for those who qualify would be financially beneficial.
    —Because many drivers have big monthly car payments, forgiving their car loans would be financially beneficial.

    Ask yourself who would benefit and why those lucky few should be granted forgiveness of their loans of whatever type.
    —Should borrowers who were cheated by lenders get relief?
    —Should borrowers who were willing to provide alternative benefits to lenders or to society get relief?
    —Should borrowers who finally paid off their loans last year get some sort of refund to match the loan forgiveness you’re proposing to grant to borrowers who still have balances?
    —Would society benefit MORE or LESS from forgiving school loans than, for example, forgiving mortgages, or forgiving car loans?

    I hope these questions will guide your rewrite. Either way, I expect you to respond to feedback to demonstrate your respect for the process. Otherwise, I’ll be less likely to help you in the future. Thanks!

      You haven’t responded to your Feedback, AnonymousGirl. It’s your call, but I consider it a dangerous policy if you’re pursuing it deliberately. We’ll chat about this at your Conference later today. See you then!
