As a celebration of Financial Literacy Month, the Maryland Council on Economic Education is pleased to bring the education community critical information about student loan forgiveness opportunities for public school education professionals.

Join Dr. Tisa Silver Canady, founder and director of the Maryland Center for Collegiate Financial Wellness, for an overview of PSLF, details of the temporary expansion, and next steps federal student loan borrowers who work in public service should take to make certain they do not miss out on this limited-time opportunity.
