Props to RIT and the handful of schools that may actually allow you to become a good craftsman and designer, the vast majority are lacking in such. My experience in glass in undergrad was formative, but overall university experience was lacking. A singular class teaching you how to get the most out of your taxes and write a prospectus would have been helpful. Grad gave me enough freedom to do what I want, but I had to learn to back it up with words, honest articulate ones. The savvy that came after was thanks to the school of hard knocks.

I can't imagine that the situation at "art schools" is going to get much better considering the adjunct problem, and I don't see a ton of them maneuvering to the craft agenda. Most of the examples I've seen of late are still pushing that the idea is more important than the execution, the antithesis of craft. Maybe they just need to start handing out bananas and duct tape, they come in all sorts of colors now.
