Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have heard those arguments before, but nonetheless, these were grown up adults, how can you force them to buy a house? I just bought one (well, it's currently being built) and it took me over a year to find and I did a lot of calculating, comparing to my current rent of my appartement, rent of a house, income, etc...

Buying a house is not something you do just like that. How can you spend many times your yearly salary without having a good look at that investment?

Having said that, I think financial education definitely needs to be course at school starting in elemetary school all the way to high school...
