4 years , wow ! time goes so fast when your having fun ,you spend a good part of your life in the educational world absorbing all this information and knowledge to make you a sucessful person in life, professional or personnal,we then spend more years trying to be successfull to that ! I have know spent the passed few years preparing the youth of the hospitality ready to grow in a very challenging industry ,giving them a glimps of the reality , and sharing to them my passion for why I became a chef , and for doing that its important to view it in this way
There is only one Education, and it has only one goal: the freedom of the mind. Anything that needs an adjective, be it civics education, or socialist education, or Christian education, or whatever-you-like education, is not education, and it has some different goal. The very existence of modified "educations" is testimony to the fact that their proponents cannot bring about what they want in a mind that is free. An "education" that cannot do its work in a free mind, and so must "teach" by homily and precept in the service of these feelings and attitudes and beliefs rather than those, is pure and unmistakable brain washing ...the hospitality need visionaries that enjoy so much the job they get involde with , they maybe not chefs or maitre d', but they enjoyment of giving the guest a new life style experience is the goal I have given my self.
Look a it this way ,even if you sincerely desire a truly well-rounded education, you must study the extremists, the obscure and "nutty." You need the balance! Your poor brain is already being impregnated with middle-of-the-road crap, twenty-four hours a day, no matter what. Network TV, newspapers, radio, magazines at the supermarket... even if you never watch, read, listen, or leave your house, even if you are deaf and blind, the telepathic pressure alone of the uncountable normals surrounding you will insure that you are automatically well grounded in consensus reality.
