As an educational consultant and college advisor, I hear unbelievable statements straight from the kids.  Even when their parents are filing bankruptcies during this difficult recession, students often demand to go to expensive private colleges or high schools. Some students even expect their parents to send them to Europe after graduation.  While this was something that was popular pre-recession, most parents today can't afford to send their children to college, not to mention give them a travel gift after they've given up their retirement savings to send them to college in the first place.
