Education provides some basic knowledge and the means to obtain more.
Read Chapter VII of Plato's Republic ("The Cave") in which he has Socrates lead a discussion on the process through which people find enlightenment. Education means, in its roots, "to lead out." (Interestingly, some--including some Jesuit theologians--maintain that this vignette was the source for the "Matrix" movie series.)
Or, as another wise old anonymous sage put it: "Education is the process of going from cocksure ignorance to thoughtful uncertainty."
Another thread puts education on a par with the polish you put on a gemstone found rough in the ground. Mark Twain expressed this thought as: "Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education."
Einstein held that: "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
