No insurance for teen pilots

My agent with Falcon said that my underwriter won't insure anyone under age 17 when flying my airplane.  My 15 year-old is beginning lessons in my C-172.  I asked about naming the instructor on the policy and was told it didn't matter.  He said he didn't think any of the other underwriters will cover him either.  If that's so then that's a major problem for the entire aviation community.  Anybody know anything about this?
