Re: am I the only parent that doesn't care if their kid(s) goes to college?

Not at all, I feel that way exactly! Was just reading in the newspaper today that 1/2 of college graduates are unemployed or underemployed. My husband dropped out of college after one semester and is a Marine, but even before becoming a Marine, he had worked three jobs and was the Parts Manager at AutoZone starting the day of his 18th birthday, the day he became eligible. He could have provided for us on that salary, he made good money. We would love to see our kids go straight into the workforce and work their way up or go to a tradeschool instead of college.
