What is the difference between forgiveness and what is all over the news lately as “student loan forgiveness”?

Forgiveness is a moral virtue in which a person is good to those who are not good to the forgiver.  This is a free-will decision and done for the one who was unfair.  “Student loan forgiveness” is very different because the students who took out a loan did not act unjustly.  Therefore, this is more like a legal pardon from a stated obligation rather than anything to do with the moral virtue of forgiving people who acted unjustly.
