Has the great experiment of the 1960s failed? Has the GI Bill, Community Colleges and the broadening of educational and economic opportunity that worked for the baby boomers failed for their children?
According to the Gallup organization, an alarming 14% of young people today are living at home with their parents.
“Fourteen percent of adults between the ages of 24 and 34 — those in the post-college years when most young adults are trying to establish independence — report living at home with their parents. By contrast, roughly half of 18- to 23-year-olds, many of whom are still finishing their education, are currently living at home.”
