I paid for all of my own school, worked year round starting junior year of high school to pay for my own car and spending money, and that carried on throughout college. I make good money for being right out of school, I am able to pay for my students loans and still save money and have spending money. Paying for school shouldn't ever be some burden that someone can't escape, if you really can't pay your loans out of school, you made poor career choices with your major and work experience in college.
I know plenty of people who paid for their own school, and plenty that had it paid for them, and there are douchebags on both sides. I know a family that paid for their two kids full undergrad, they both got degrees in majors with no career prospects, now both kids are unemployed, married to people with little to no income, and live in (very nice) houses bought and paid for by their parents. Is that how everyone will turn out if they have their education paid for? No, I have a few friends who had college paid for, got good engineering degrees and do very well because they are damn good at what they do and they work hard.
Here's an easy solution, if you had your education paid for and don't want to be an asshole, don't act like you're in dire straights financially just because you can't get that brand spankin new car right out of school to go along with your overpriced apartment or condo, and if you paid for your own school or got student loans, don't call out everyone who didn't unless they make an ass of themselves first, especially if you're not in the position to pay it off yourself.
