EDU Headline Roundup: Supreme Court Rulings Impacting U.S. Schools

Last week saw historic rulings from the Supreme Court on President Biden’s student debt relief plan and affirmative action in college admissions. SCOTUS’ rulings on these two issues have far-reaching implications. Critics of the affirmative action decision say it could make it more difficult for minority students to gain admission to selective colleges and universities, while the ruling on Biden’s student debt relief program could prevent millions of borrowers from receiving relief in the wake of the economic impact of COVID-19 on loan holders.

Culinary Arts Training, Michelin Stars, and the Art of Food

Having been inspired by season 2 of The Bear, a critically-acclaimed TV dramedy series about a young chef who returns home to Chicago to run his family’s sandwich shop after his brother’s suicide, Chelsea and Katie are tackling culinary training this week on 16:1. From technical training, apprenticeships, and schools like the Culinary Institute of America and Le Cordon Blue (founded in Paris in 1895 and considered to be one of the most prestigious culinary schools in the world), we cover the entry points into some of the most demanding yet rewarding careers in food and drink. Learn how restaurants earn coveted Michelin stars, find out where your favorite celebrity chefs went to school, and what to expect if you want to succeed in the business of operating a restaurant.
