Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.
L'éducation est ce qui reste après que l'on ait oublié ce qu'on a appris à l'école.
Enjoy below an interpretation of this quote by Maryam Hemono:
I suppose what Einstein is saying here is that education isn’t about the facts and figures that have been memorised and regurgitated over a series of years, only to never be used again.
No. Education is made up of the things that can be re-used; that can and are put into practice on a regular basis; that are used as tools in our everyday lives.
Perhaps we could go a step further and deduce that Einstein didn’t see things like Science, English and Maths as education. He might instead have seen the knowledge of how to apply these tools as far more valuable. Knowing which decisions to make in order to get the best results and being able to think in a way that is productive - that is knowledge.
That said, maybe he meant something completely different because this view could seem parodoxical to many in the light of Einsten's achievements and who he was. After all, Albert Einstein was an incredibly intelligent man. He hugely developed physics, making several discoveries in his lifetime and shaping the science that we are taught at school today.
Knowing which decisions to make in order to get the best results and being able to think in a way that is productive- that is knowledge.
Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. Albert Einstein
L'éducation est ce qui reste après que l'on ait oublié ce qu'on a appris à l'école. Albert Einstein
