My parents put me through college because they knew it was an important advantage. It's an expense you have eighteen years to save for, not a sudden emergency. When I see the pathetic stats on what people have saved - or more likely have NOT saved - for the future, I am sorry for them, but $500k is not enough to retire on unless you retire at an advanced age. I'm sorry if the truth sounds "snarky" but that doesn't keep it from being the truth.
As I said on the "Resolutions" thread, we were debt free long before we ever heard of Dave Ramsey. We were both raised by parents who were very good investors and savers, and they set a good example.
