College. Every parent thinks their kids should go to college. And, many want them to rush into it immediately after high school. Is college the right path for EVERY kid? Is college worth its cost these days? Did you know that the cost of tuition is BY FAR the highest inflationary item of them all – health care is a DISTANT second! We have a home-schooling family co-hosting #DadChat tonight. Jim and PJ Jonas are the parents of EIGHT kids – and Brett is the oldest and they will bring their thoughts to this edifying topic!
Human nature is such that when something doesn’t directly affect you, it’s easy to not pay attention. Such has been the case for this dad regarding the escalating costs of college, the incredible competition to get in, and all the bizarre and increasingly complex options to try and pay for it all. Maybe it’s a scam on us parents? Maybe it’s another bubble about to burst as some say about the over 1 trillion in student debt? All I know is we are paying a ridiculous fortune to send our first-born to a private college in Boston.
