Funding post secondary education - Have you had the talk?

Did you check out the video in the last posting? Here's the link again in case you missed it:

I took this of my son before he started high school to test some questions we incorporated into surveys given to students prior to running a course.  I thought it would be interesting to see what his answers would be.

As part of these surveys, we ask students if they plan to take post secondary education and how they plan to pay for it. Some of the results are quite interesting. One set of the survey results had 10% of the class answering "don't know" to the "how you plan to pay" question. These were grade 11 students with only one more year of high school.  A bit worrisome.

Parents, have you talked to your kids about paying for  school?

I'd love to do a survey of kids and their parents using these same questions.  If any of you would be interested in getting us to do such a survey, please contact us.

James Whelan,
