This is a great answer.
I certainly agree with your viewpoint, but a culinary degree comes only after primary and secondary schooling. Students will have to swot for innumerable examinations throughout the ten years (or thereabouts) of intense preparation and drilling.

Ivan, yes we learn many abstract abilities. However, the system of 300 years ago, on the job training, apprenticeships, midshipman positions, and etcetera also taught people skills, abilities, and abstract qualities. Working TAUGHT them.
As an engineer, science type, I can tell you: A's are not easy in science. Those who get them are very often socially inept. Great people, yes. Able to reassure a client, or think on their feet to resolve an issue in the field... don't count on it.
