New Special Collection: Challenges to Biden Student Loan Forgiveness Plan

Feb. 28, 2023

NEA President Becky Pringle stands at podium in front of the White House, with several people behind her holding signs that read: "Cancel Student Debt" and "President Biden Thank You for Canceling Student Debt."

On August 24, 2022, President Biden announced his plan for student loan forgiveness. Numerous lawsuits have been filed across the country challenging the plan, including lawsuits filed by state, organizational, and individual plaintiffs.  A new Clearinghouse case set collects these lawsuits.  Check them out here.  

On February 28, 2023, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in two of these cases, Nebraska v. Biden and Department of Education v. Brown. Learn more about those cases and the issues at stake by reading about them on their Clearinghouse case pages.
