education, formal and otherwise

Interesting indeed that a brain drain on "education" largely left out life experiences outside classrooms/institutions.   Glad to have "experiences throughout my life" added to the conversation.  Is even more interesting to think about the implications of "Thinking back to my most formative times ... very few of them occurred within the walls of a formal teaching institution."  Maybe that is telling us something about formal education and its problems?
