What is costing so much?  Is the quality of education worth it, and what options are there to decrease the debt burden for students?
Would Community Colleges and Trade Schools be a better option for work experience and less cost, less student debt?  I am all for education.  I am against unrealistic job expectations and student debt.

Sam Becker: The Simple Reason College Tuition Costs Have Exploded

Why is it the parent’s responsibility to pay for “higher education?”
Ken Clark: Understanding the Skyrocketing Costs of a College Education

The skyrocketing costs of college can lead a parent to wonder if an investment in higher education still makes sense. This is especially true when the annual cost of attending a private college can easily exceed the annual salary a graduate receives during their first few years of work.

Bottom Line
College costs are increasing faster than most of the other areas of life, and show no signs of slowing. For parents or students within a year or two of starting school, this can mean that your last year of college may cost 15-25% more than your first year. For parents or students that have a number of years until college begins, it means your savings plan needs to account for this gigantic increase in cost.

Have you participated a neighborhood or trail Watch program?  Comments on the dangers and to protect yourself and how to improve programs? Comments on the area being patrolled and probable dangers?  Adults who park their campers in parking lots for schools, churches, etc. to prevent vandalism by young kids or teens is less dangerous than patrolling a wooded, lone area for teenage (singular or groups) or adults. Plus what about moose and bears? And day versus night, especially full moon craziness.
