Education, particularly higher education, college USED to be a privilege for those who had inclinations and callings towards it. Now it's almost a requirement to be accepted within our society.
Even worse, the degrees don't guarantee a job after graduation. College tuition is unaffordable to most people which is why they need debt, which cannot be discharged even in bankruptcy - in other words, debt slave.
Allowing an ignorant teenager seeking self improvement, education and future employment to accept six figure amounts of debt, should be criminalized.
A child born today will need $250,000-$700,000 (at current yearly rises) to afford a typical 4 year degree. So as "responsible" parents we "should" save and sacrifice for their benefit! (I jest).
As a parent, why would we want to send out children to an environment which promotes behavior contrary to all we've taught and warned them about? They come home to ridicule our religion, belittle our ways because they've become so worldly from such learned minds from their expensive inculcation. Then what? They leave the faith, value secularism and condemn their own family.
