I know you know and I also know that you know that they don't teach how to sharpen either, you know?

Oops, back on topic......

First of all, luvs, THIS is the way I do sharp. Using steels to rip up your edges is decades passe'.

Secondly, stay in the referenced forum and/or goto knifeforums.com "in the kitchen" subforum where many of the members and half of the moderators are pro chefs. Ask them their opinion on culinary school sharpening classes. Be prepared for a lot of LOL's.

Yeah, most culinary school graduates don't have the faintest idea how to sharpen a knife. I did have one that worked for me a few years ago that was a wiz at hand sharpening, but he learned it from his Dad and is an avid hunter & fisherman. He said pretty much everyone at school was always begging him to sharpen their knives for them!
