None of what you said has any relevance to the article, my post or this school. This is a school that is teaching you a skill that will be with you for the rest of your life -- something you would have to pay for otherwise, and something you should be happy to work hard for. They also are not an employer, who you are free to negotiate your salary with or go elsewhere for work. If you don't like the terms, like I said, you are free to not attend and pay upwards of $20,000 a year and perform however you desire. I'd look at them more of a coach. Do you think the Olympic athletes work 9 to 5 5 days a week? And they usually pay their coaches to work the hell out of them.
