A photographic education. What matters?

Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught. — Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde is always a source of fun. That particular quote is plucked from The Critic as Artist: with Some Remarks upon the Importance of Doing Nothing.

From earlier in the same piece of dialog, "I am but too conscious of the fact that we are born in an age when only the dull are treated seriously, and I live in terror of not being misunderstood."

Still true today?

Um, mostly because we teach them what already is or was instead of teaching them to invent what will be....
