The student loan issue doesn't look likely to go away no matter which candidate wins the Presidency. A new survey shows the average student-loan borrower graduated with $26.6K of loans in 2011, up 5.3% from 2010. The problem is more pronounced in the for-profit sector with evidence mounting that the bang-for-the-buck offered by online, technical, and secondary degrees is waning. Analyst still think the the sector will have winners and losers, but warn a rocky road in general could lie ahead.
