That means that millions of parents across the country are not only bracing for their children to leave home for the first time, but also  to fork over hundreds of thousands of dollars in tuition.

While on one level that might be true, Fool contributor Brian Stoffel explains why there's much more to it than that and by simply reading the headlines, people are missing out on the bigger picture.
