Not that it matters for my kids. Higher education is out of reach due to our social situation. But here in Denmark they are closing colleges now. They can not fill them. The one our town (Holbaek) would close down within a year. The main reason is not the economical situation, but the fact that modern studies demands more privacy than a college life can provide. It started back around 2002-4, where most of the smaller apartments were bought by parents of new students. It became the new approach to a life during the study. The price level were marked by the larger demand from well-paying parents. If you want a kid to attend higher education, you have to own a house you can second-mortage or your kids have ride a train for hours every day.
