Default Re: Teen Sues Parents for Cash, College Tuition. Does She Have a Case?

Rachel and her supporters remain upset

The New Jersey parents being sued for tuition by their entitled teenager were excoriated in a Friday rant on her new Facebook page as “spoiled” baby boomers who would rather feather a retirement nest than pay their kids’ college bills.

“I have been stunned by the financial greed of modern parents who are more concerned with retiring into some fantasy world rather than provide for their children’s college and young adult years,” a poster — presumed to be Morris Catholic HS senior Rachel Canning or a supporter — wrote in the pre-dawn web screed.

“Suburban baby boomer types are the spoiled lot, they make massive amount of money a year, they are used to flying to luxury destinations when they want, and buy things that they don’t need, people should be inclined to see things my way.”

The post appeared on the “Education for Rachel” Facebook page, which Canning previously told The Post she set up to support her cause.

Rachel's disappointment that she cannot get full funding to pursue her dream is shared by the Duke University student who had no choice but to star in porn movies to pay for her education.

Meet Belle Knox, the Duke Porn Star (As You Might Have Heard)

On various tube sites, you can watch Belle Knox sit on a penis as wide as an arm, go down on another barely legal teen and receive facial after facial. Meanwhile, if you're an undergraduate at Duke, the North Carolina university ranked seventh in the country according to U.S. News & World Report, you can discuss Marx and de Beauvoir with her in sociology and women's studies classes (her planned double-major)....

PLAYBOY: You wrote that one of the main reasons you did porn was to pay for school and not be saddled with large student loans once you graduated. Would you be doing porn if Duke were free?

KNOX: No. If Duke had given me the proper financial resources, I wouldn't have done porn. They have nobody to blame for the scandal but themselves.

PLAYBOY: Is that what this is really about for you—the skyrocketing cost of higher education in America?

KNOX: Absolutely. My story is a testament to how fucking expensive school is. The fact that the only viable options to pay for college are to take out gigantic student loans, to not go to college at all or to join the sex industry really says something. We need to recognize that there's a gap between what middle-class and upper-middle-class families can pay and what they're asked to pay. We also need to stop looking at loans as a solution to fix our education system, because they're crippling our economy.
