As a parent of three, two who have finished college and one currently enrolled, we would definitely have appreciated more financial counseling. There was VERY little support at the high school or college level. We muddled through mounds of paperwork and complicated processes with the hope that we were doing it right! Parents and their children need counseling and guidance to make sure they are making the right decisions, applying for all the possible scholarships, financial aid, etc. This college generation is going to be strapped with more college debt than any before them! Actually, we need to be doing more than counseling, but at least it's a start!
