Yeah- averages. It's still mathematically absurd to make a statement like "I'm not only going to survive for the next 8 years and then some, but I'm also going to succeed at all my classes, graduate on time, and then be able to pay off all my student debt with my swanky new job that pays 2 billion dollars per second!", especially when most people who make this decision don't interview actual people who've done so or checked attrition rates for their college or found which percentage of graduates actually get these sorts of jobs in the present age, etc.
So I'm not making an argument against college here- I'm making an argument for belief. It takes a remarkable amount of faith to do the college thing, and people still do it daily.

Government sponsored education is an investment in youth. Even assuming that parents have all the up to date info about stuff you need to know to start off well in life, not all of them will teach everything to their children, either because of not wanting to or just not thinking of everything they need to know when there's an opportunity to teach. Regardless of whether or not parents "should" be teaching that stuff as decided by how it was done for the last several generations, it is a terrible idea to invest a sizable sum of tax money into students and then to not teach them the essentials to being productive citizens - the kind of citizens which encourage economic growth and bring in tax dollars. In other words, a return on the investment.
Especially because schools are funded by tax dollars and unsuccessful youths mean less tax $ which means shittier schools due to budgets cuts and the vicious cycles continues.

Think about the average amount of time a parent is around their child/children in this day and age. Now think about all of the single parents out there that may have second jobs or taking into consideration that they are single, they have many other responsibilities. Its quite difficult sometimes.

Oh that's easy:
- Start talking girl same way you would a guy (except with fewer fart joke)
- After you both share a laugh or two, ask her to dinner. Social pressures will make it very likely to say yes unless she's already with someone.
Also, remember that:
- She is a person just like you.
- She is equally if not more self conscious than you.
- Pretending to be confident is indistinguishable from actually being confident.
- The absolute worst thing she can do is say no and then you can try again with another girl. Turns out that there's like 3.6 billion of them, so there is by no means a shortage
