What is the difference between schooling and education? Does schooling means the act of attending an organized group recognized by society or partly? and eduction means the act of gaining knowledge?

I had read the adventures of Tom and Huckleberry as a small child, and may add here that I understand.

I never experienced major hindrance between my class time and my brothel time. But perhaps my memory, among other things, is failing.

Mostly people confuse educated with trained. In the U.S. largely what we have is a training system, not an education system. We would be in nowhere as dire straights as we are, if we had as many educated people as we have people with college degrees.

Isn’t education what we have left after we have forgotten what we learned in school?

Right on Epi! Paul Simon said, "When I think about all the crap I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all."

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!

How many times have I said "An education is not job training."? I cannot count. A few other things I say:

There is value to the country in an educated population. (This is usually followed by my (leftist liberal) rant about the need for affordable higher education or my (equally leftist liberal) rant about the need for quality public schools including art, music, theater, science, dance, social science as well as reading - writing - math.

There is academic education and experiential education. Both are important and neither substitutes for the other. And, one may take similar, but distinct lessons from each.

A high school student on a vocational education track needs the best possible academic teachers: this is (probably) the student's last chance to see the academic world.

An intellectual is one who has been educated beyond his intelligence.

"Education cost money, but then so does ignorance" - Claus Moser

It is too easy to criticise retrospectively. As long as your teachers haven't alienated you from learning and, as importantly, creativity then they have done a satisfactory job to my mind. (still can't forgive one infant school teacher for battering my natural left-handedness out of me though)

I agree with you on the whole. I recall my school days not as a breeding ground of creativity, but most of my teachers were good and passionate; moreover, I see education as knowledge, the latter you cannot achieve if you are not curious. Curiosity is the primary engine.
