The ruling carries particular weight and anxiety for student loan borrowers because they already have one of the most difficult debts to pay off. With skyrocketing tuition costs and stagnant wages, many cannot keep up with payments and face a lifetime of debt.

Whether the government should be allowed to forgive student debt has been debated for years, with no clear resolution. Supporters argue that allowing relief would provide much-needed financial comfort and stability for borrowers, particularly those from low-income backgrounds and communities of colour disproportionately impacted by student debt.

The nation watches as the court makes its decision — and all eyes are on the millions of student loan debtors hoping for much-needed relief.
