Culinary schools vs frustrated graduates: who's in the right?

Culinary schools recruit students by promising that career opportunities in the restaurant business are growing like crazy.

Thus students negotiate large loans to pay for the cooking school. But when students graduate and find that jobs are Not in abundance, they are frustrated, says the Shreveport Times. They're trying to pay off big loans and the work they're finding is characterized as "long hours, low pay."

Students have joined forces to sue the schools for giving the students misleading info.

Should students have carefully read and investigated the fact and opinion in the culinary schools' ads?

Are the schools culpable for their hype?

That's an example of why you're being lead in a study of fact vs opinion. So you can be smart consumers and intelligent voters.
