Most college-bound high school students want to help their parents pay for their college education.[@@]
Fidelity Investments, Boston, has published data supporting that conclusion in a report on a recent survey of 477 college-bound high school students between the ages of 14 and 17 and a survey of 376 parents of college-bound high school students with annual household incomes of at least $35,000.
The researchers who conducted the survey found that 95% of the teens surveyed say they feel an obligation to pay for some of their college costs, and only 26% say parents should pay more than half of the bill.
