The United States Office of Education is going to hire 51 "inspectors" soon to travel around the country and find former students who have skipped out on their federal student loans. The 51 bill collectors will try to collect about $30 million. This amount, according to the education office, is owed by students. A spokeswoman at the education office was not too sure of the techniques the collectors will employ, but she promised that they will not "just throw anybody in jail." 'They'll try to talk or argue with them and get them to pay up," she said. "There are legal sanctions for debts, you know," and added that "they're liable if they're 18 or older."
