Education is not just learning what is in a book but more importantly a creative thought process to approaching a problem and solving it efficiently.
I disagree. From my two years of college experience, it is just a test to see if you are competent. I will never ever use any of what I learned in college in my life(wish I had taken Spanish courses though!). I could see the advantage to getting a degree in LA or horticulture, but from my experience education is just regurgatating words out of a book. With Quickbooks and a good accountant, I really don't see the need in even taking business classes.
