How does education occur?
There are 3 main methods that can be broadly applied; theory & study much like a traditional education system, practical application and learning by usage/inquiry/investigation, dialogue and debate with your chosen mentor or teaching those in your care.
We as individuals can take everything to be a learning experience and indeed education should be a perpetual thing. The moment we cease to inquire is the moment we need to be circumspect and ask ourselves why we have stopped.
self-study is also vital in education an a healthy respect of skepticism or doubting the currently accepted status quo for things should be applauded. Be open minded enough to allow new ideas but not so much that our brains fall out
