ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Attention teachers – even more student loan forgiveness could be on the way, thanks to a new bill. Under a bill co-authored by Sen. Ben Ray Luján and Rep. Teresa Leger Fernández, the federal government will make monthly student loan payments for teachers who are working in early education programs and at high-need public schools. After five years, all of their student loans will be forgiven.
