I didn't go to college, and my oldest son has chosen not to go either, he doesn't see the point in paying someone for unsolicited advice or indoctrination. I don't see where it is our burden to pay for something I don't necessarily believe in, like abortion or college? My oldest son is a senior in high school and he started his own business and has 3 employees. Why on Earth would he want to give up $100k a year with potential for plenty more to go to college and be preached to by students and professors about ideas that are counter to his own interest and beliefs? College is not a right and it certainly isn't a requirement, for that matter it is not the tax payers burden either.
