Children from low income families deserve to get an education, whether their parents can afford to pay for it or not. Having parents who choose to keep a roof over your head and food on the table is more important than them paying for schooling. There are bursaries, scholarships and loans (all of which helped put me through school). To expect that all parents should pay their children's way through school is to ignore the many families for whom this is impossible.

It's impossible for most to finance college at the age of 18. How do you study and make 30k a year? Not happening. For me, my parents have saved since I was born and have enough to cover my first 3 years. My senior year I will have to find the money for myself. The student needs to take some responsibility but debt is never a good choice, so the parents should help.

I am the 2nd of 4 kids from a farming family, all of whom went to university. It would have bankrupted my parents to try to pay for all of us.
