Schooling vs. education

Read what the fellow going by the name "Culturologist" has to say in the comments. More importantly, notice how he says it. Now here is a guy who is very impressed with himself and his "accomplishments", but I have to think that just because you spend a lot of cash buying a degree, this no more makes you educated than laying out the dough for a formula one car makes you Mario Andretti. Education can happen wherever you are, even sometimes in school, but if all you do is go to school - all you get is schooled.
