How will Clinton and Trump deal with college debt?

Hosted by

With the presidential campaign now focused on personalities and family histories, how is a voter to know how either candidate might actually govern? This is the first of a five-part series exploring issues that could be critical for people trying to make up their minds. Hillary Clinton is a known “policy wonk” with detailed plans for “college affordability” and how to pay for it.  That invites both support and criticism. Donald Trump has just made a few statements — leaving supporters and critics to speculate about what he might try to do.
