  1. Chances are that even if they only got a few college courses they would do better in life than if they had none. A large percentage of people also go back to school if their work demands it. A better ploy is to pay for 50% up front and 50% if/when they pass. Perhaps they dropped out because it is very hard to work and study at the same time.
    My parents did not support me past 18; I paid my own way through College, University and Grad school, but it took me until 45 because I did most of it part-time. Even with College and a year of University there were opportunities offered to me that wouldn’t have happened without any PS training. On the down side I had many years of near poverty and didn’t earn a great salary until after 45, giving me only 20 years to really put money away.
