Ask Steve Show Topic – Bullying at Schools Increases Post-Election and U.S. Financial Literacy as it Relates to Student Loans and Bankruptcy
Join us Saturday at 3pm for the Ask Steve radio program on NewsRadio KFBK 1530AM when we address two big issues parents are facing – #BULLYING and how to navigate STUDENT LOAN agreements and #BANKRUPTCY.
Has your child’s school seen an increase in an increase in harassment and bullying since the election? A study out this week by the Southern Poverty Law Center shows an 80% increase at schools recently. The group documented nearly 900 separate incidents of bias and violence against immigrants, Latinos, African-Americans, women, LGBT people, Muslims and Jews in the ten days after Trump captured the White House. We will discuss the responsibility that schools have in managing bullying and harassment. Has your child experienced recent bullying? How has your school handled it? We want to hear from you so please listen in and call us live during the show.
Topic 2 will address the need for more financial literacy in the U.S. and an announcement this week by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a name you’ve heard us mention often with mortgage industry reform. The CFPB is taking a leadership role in helping consumers navigate the financial marketplace and build financial well-being. The program mostly consists of online guides and resources to help build financial literacy. Do you think this will be effective? Do you feel you need this type of education?
Topic 2 will parlay into a discussion with attorney Ronald Holland from ULC who will discuss some of the options you may have if you are in a bind with a costly student loan. There are options through bankruptcy filing to discharge off these loans, however, only a bankruptcy attorney is going to share that with you!
