Today, live from the White House State Dining Room, President Obama took to Tumblr to respond to some of the thousands of questions that Americans across the country asked via Tumblr about all things education.
The event followed the executive action the President took yesterday to make student loan debt more affordable and manageable to repay, and covered a broad range of topics, from college access to student loans, and the steps the President is taking to make it all a little easier to manage.
(And, naturally, a GIF came out of it.)
