    I think it does, but I think we can also use the term 'education' in a non-formal sense, to include the values we are taught by our family, in our places of worship, etc....

    Cheers,

    That is what education means to me personally. In my perspective it is not the degree but the learning , the knowlegde acquired that constitutes education. I have seen so many so called educated having an understanding of cavemen and some little reads with so much wisdom.
