NEW YORK (AP) — A deadline is fast approaching for teachers, librarians, nurses and others who work in public service to apply to have their student loan debt forgiven. New figures from the U.S. Department of Education show 145,000 borrowers have had the remainder of their debt canceled through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.

Federal figures show that an estimated 43 million Americans carry student loans worth $1.6 trillion.
