The Value of an Education

The most valuable thing education gives you is a thought process, not any particular fact. But this isn't always clear because the mind is usually trained by working through data from example after example. What remains of significance from the data is a better way of thinking. A great teacher trains your mind rather than gives you facts.

TRUE. Well said Anders.
Learning HOW to think is more important than WHAT to think.
