Justin just isn't ready for college. He's not even sure if he ever wants to go to college, and tells his mom "No, not interested." What would you do if he were your child?

While this is still bias towards college being a necessary step in life, I appreciate the effort.

I'm all for only going to college if it's a specific and necessary step for a young adult to achieve their goals. Otherwise it really is a waste of time and money for everyone involved. It would also be helpful to stop thinking of 18-22 year-olds as kids, and indeed calling them that (ie: college kids).
