Wait, are you saying "most kids work their way through college, thereby paying for a significant portion of their tuition and room and board"?

Because I'm not sure that's really the case. I think the vast, vast majority of student costs are either funded by mom and dad or by loans, with only a relatively modest percentage of the total typically funded by the student.

Note that this isn't necessarily unreasonable. When college tuition, room and board is in excess of $40,000 per year, it's tough to make much of a dent working part time and summers when you have very limited knowledge/experience to offer employers.
