Did you go to college? Grad school? What did you major in and do you use your degree for your job?

I am currently in college right now. I have some time before I graduate but I still consider myself educated. I graduated top of my class in high school and have been on honor roll multiple times in both high school and college.

I didn't attend college. Yet i am very well educated. I am well read, and I pride myself on learning new things every single day. I read at least 4 books a week on different subjects. I am currently reading a book on money. man oh man i have learned more about money in three days then I have ever known before.

Education could be formal or informal. Formal education involves attendance at a formal school or training institution, where a certificate to that effect is awarded. On the contrary, informal education is acquired through private efforts by listening, observing, practising, engaging in trial and error, until some level of proficiency is attained. I have undergone both, so I can say that I am educated, and feel it. I have a bachelor of science degree in Economics from my country's premier and prestigious university in 1979, coming out with second class upper. Thereafter, I had attended various in-service training in various disciplines at home and abroad where I had worked for over 20 years before retiring voluntarily in 2002. Since then, I have gained a lot of education from the internet, which I have almost been addicted to. I am currently running a small internet-based business, which has exposed me to a lot of education also.

Schooling does not equal education. There are those who are well-schooled, but remain poorly educated. Education begins long before children go to school, and continues until we die, though there are those who really seem bent on NOT learning anything in life.
