Education Does Not Make you Smart

Education, as a wise woman told me, does not make you smart and many of the ill-educated are very smart. Education is likely to make the smart smarter and the less smart wiser. This is not guaranteed as education can easily make the smart more stupid and the less smart even less smart. You do not need to be well educated but you do need to be smart.
