The number of Americans with student debt is more than twice as high as the number of people with high school diplomas.

According to a report released by the U: Education Week, the number is $1.7 trillion, and it’s projected to rise by $3.9 trillion over the next decade.

This is more debt than the nation’s entire population has in the last 50 years.

The U. S. has long had a higher rate of college completion than the rest of the developed world, and the problem isn’t just a matter of graduating students with more debt.

The number also tends to be higher among African-Americans.

According the study, black students graduating from four-year colleges were three times more likely than white students to take out loans, while Hispanic students were more likely to borrow.

But while the number may seem large, it’s actually fairly small.
