December 7, 2011 |  7:33 pm

When you think about going to school and the big payoff, these days it's more about the massive amount of accumulated debt than about getting a job. 

How high is the cost of higher education?

This year, student debt is expected to top $1 trillion, beating out credit-card debt in America. 

KTLA viewer Chris is carrying about $100,000 in student loans herself. She asks Laz about what President Obama has been proposing to help ease the growing financial burden of higher education. He explains in the video below.



You can catch him on KTLA-TV Channel 5 weekday mornings and during the 1 p.m. newscast. 

If you have a question, write or send a video to He just might answer your question on television.
