    It started as an essay topic but I would like to hear more opinions

    What do you value more? Your knowledge or your education? Why? Does your university degree make you feel better/more self-confident?

    My knowledge. I see my education simply as a means to get knowledge... Education is the means to the ends of knowledge...

    Education provides you with knowledge. Well good education does at least.
    The more interesting question is something like 'Education vs Intelligence.'

    If knowledge was all that mattered then people would be able to get certified for occupations such as law and medicine by simply passing a test. Education is important because is serves as a qualification. Education is not simply a means to gain knowledge. Your education is a pedigree, an indicator of status, and a merit of character. What school did you attend? What grades did you make? What awards and distinctions did you receive? All serve as a method to measure a persons potential. Knowledge is what enables you, your education is what empowers you.

    Education is the most common way of obtaining knowledge and can you really call it an education if you don't pay attention ro whatever and don't gain any knowledge?
