British parents are finally starting to learn what American parents have known for years: It costs a lot to send a kid to college.. I have to say that I don’t feel a hell of a lot of sympathy, though, since I’m carrying about $30G in debt myself. It’d be damn nice if my parents had been able to foot the entire bill, but I don’t know anybody in my town that could’ve afforded such a thing (unless you went to the local community college). I guess it does suck, though, that countless generations of British students before have been given grants, and suddenly now everybody has to pay. I can’t help but think it’s going to have an effect on the number of kids going on to higher education…
