You're right to be worried. Student debt is a growing crisis in America. In fact, I believe that overpriced educations that don't result in jobs are a new bubble ready to burst.
Today, 7 in 10 bachelor's degree recipients graduate with some debt, and student debt — surpassing $1.2 TRILLION — is second only to mortgages. But just like the housing bubble, where people owed more on their houses than the houses were worth, too many young people owe for an education that does not turn into the job imagined.

National Harbor, Maryland — In order to fix America's stagnating economy, the nation must first address the the breakdown of the traditional American family and find a remedy for declining marriage and birthrates, panelists at the Conservative Political Action Conference argued Friday morning.
While speaking at a CPAC Panel called "State of the Family in America: How Do We Measure Success?" well-known conservative economist and CNBC senior contributor Larry Kudlow argued that much of the reduction of economic growth in America is being caused by an increase in poverty resulting from a reversal in the traditional child-rearing paradigm.
