It may be a mistake to think that the only way to be an educated person is through formal schooling. The world has a lot to offer if we take the time to look at what's going on in the woods, streams, or our own backyards. --DM
Also, maybe we'll need to learn things about ourselves and other people that we aren't taught directly.
A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.
