And come to think of it - if I had kids and was in the position to pay for their education - I'd tell them that they get to go to college after spending a year training in something (medical assistant, hairdresser, ANYTHING) and they'd have to research the occupational outlook for it and give real data about employability in those fields.

A year while they do an ROP program or community college trade program, before actually going for a degree, is cheaper than handling boomerang kids with crushing debt.

Then, my class background is different. But I think most upper middle class and rich parents are not necessarily that bright when it comes to preparing their kids for real life, anyway.
