Cartoon 5: Student Loans

This is an untitled cartoon from the "Student Loans" topic section of by artisy Brian Fairrington.
The cartoon depicts a student in his graduation cap and gown with a ball and chain labled "Student Loans" and "Recession" hanging in place of a tassel to symbolize the immense debt that many students find themselves in upon graduating. The cartoon relates to the huge price of college, especially in light of the recent recession and the irony that many students graduate with the hope of getting a career and earning an income but instead must pay off the huge debt they accrued through getting an education.
