💔 Fair or Favoritism? College Tuition Drama

So here's the deal: the son graduates valedictorian and gets into a top-ranked school with a 50k a year price tag. The parents agree to contribute 25k a year, with the son taking loans for the rest. On the other hand, the daughter, a C student, is considering a lesser-known college costing 20k a year. The parents counter with an offer to pay 6k a year or fully fund community college if she maintains a 3.5 GPA. Daughter claims favoritism, but the parents believe they're being fair based on the kids' achievements and potential opportunities. 🤔💭 Let's see what people think about this situation...
