"Educating Youth to Become Social Conscious Millionaires" I was recently asked by an audience member at the end of my speech what I thought about the idea of educating our youth to ensure that they could all go to college. My response is that I did not support that idea. My recommendation is that we educate and preparing our youth, throughout the K-12 education system, to become social conscious millionaires. According to statistics, parents are spending about $ 200,000 per child to raise them. The taxpayers investment into the K-12 educational system is another $125,000 per student. A 4-year college degree can add on another $150,000. Thus, we should invest a total of $325,000 just to make sure they can attend college? I don't agree. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
