THROUGH THE MAGIC OF AMAZON RECOMMENDATIONS, I ran across 50 Rules Kids Won’t Learn in School: Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education. Here’s one: “#15 Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping. They called it ‘opportunity.'”

Sounds kind of like what Tony Woodlief was saying.

UPDATE: My 17 year old nephew gets this — he’s been working (in a very grunt-level capacity) at a helicopter outfit and taking lessons with the money he’s made. My sister just emailed that he had his solo flight tonight. I’m very proud of him.
