Duke Grad Student Secretly Lived In a Van to Escape Loan Debt

While I do not want to dismiss his struggle there is little talk in this article about predatory lending, poor quality colleges, and economic inequality that truly predicts a student's potential.

Also, there is no mention of social stigma and that many people try this type of living but are often targeted and legislated out of doing it.  Politicians create zoning restrictions and police enforce them.
