The Barack Obama administration is highlighting growing concern over soaring United States student debt by forming a new enforcement unit to crack down on illegal behaviour by higher education institutions, write Barney Jopson and Sam Fleming for Financial Times.

The Department of Education said that it would create the unit, having taken action recently against several colleges for profiting illegally from students with deceptive marketing and inappropriate federal loans.

Student debt has become an issue in the 2016 presidential election with the Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and the Republican Marco Rubio all offering plans to relieve the burden of student loans. Student loan debt rose US$13 billion to US$1.2 trillion in the third quarter, according to the New York Federal Reserve. That amounts to a bigger stockpile of debt than car loans or credit cards. Delinquency rates were far higher than those categories, with 11.6% at least 90 days past due.
