Don’t let schooling interfere with your education.

Mark Twain

This certainly implies that there is a difference between schooling and education.  Most of us learned not to touch a hot stove without going to school.  The natural consequences of touching a hot stove were sufficient to discourage this activity.

Oliver DeMille, author of A Thomas Jefferson Education said the following (I am paraphrasing here):

No teacher is an educator.  The only person that can educate anyone is the student themselves.  They need great teachers and there are great teachers but no education takes place until the student decides that they want to learn and is willing to put forth the effort required to achieve that goal.

A John Madsen stated:

A lecture is that which passes from the notes of the teacher to the notes of the student without passing through the mind of either.

A lecture setting requires that student listen and write down what is said.  Later they are tested on how well they remember what they were told.  A mentorial based education system requires that the students read the material so they are prepared for a discussion.  They argue and debate, offer insites, etc.  They really learn the material.  This process forces the book to pass through the student rather than just getting through the book.
