"...sometimes young people just need some space to find out what they want to do before getting caught up in work, and this often means they do better, more productive work later."

Put me in that category. I changed my major of studies four times in two years, before settling on English. If tuition had been priced the way it was now, I probably would have flunked out of some "practical" discipline and gone back to working in the print shop (and thereby eventually be thrown out of work as digital disruption did its thing with that trade...).

You've referred to the importance of "space" a few times on this blog, and it is such an under-appreciated attribute, probably because today's students don't really get the benefit of it. The stakes are too high.
