Washington D.C. (Jan. 24, 2011) – The Imagine America Foundation, a career education scholarship provider and research organization, seeks to decrease the student loan default rate by educating students about responsible borrowing.  The Foundation has released, in beta, a new interactive tool, "Financial Planning Made Simple," for career college students.
