Sebastián Vielmas, another author, outlines how the Chilean student movement worked to transform the acceptance of student debt as a private burden into a movement for the right to education. “A fair system allows everyone to study without becoming indebted and part of that challenge is to get mainstream media, students, families, politicians and all society to enter a debate”.
