    Is it that difficult to believe that you don't necessarily have to be in a building to learn?

    Most of my learning is outside of the classroom setting. The SCA is where I get a lot of my learning, reading at home, and just straight experimentation. I'd say 75% of my knowledge was gained outside of school... that being said school is very important, without the base and the training for critical thinking learning is MUCH more difficult. School is more about learning how to learn rather than actually learning.

    It's not difficult at all. In terms of actual, organized classes, online courses are becoming more and more common and tailored to aid student success.

    Most of the jobs I've held preferred me to learn on the job, not go to a school to learn.  Even when I became a vet tech, they taught me the way they wanted me to learn and what they wanted me to learn, which helped me pass my certification test with absolutely no in room classes.  Granted, I have been to college, I do have a degree in IT, and I have continued my education through online classes, unless you're desperate for the six figure paycheck, start from the bottom and learn from your employer, that way they're loyal to you when it comes to hiring someone new vs. promoting from within.

    Yes it is!

    Most people lie about what they know and try to seem really knowledgeable - that's why people ask for a degree when recruiting, to make sure that at least that person was there to learn.

    If they didn't ask for the degree, someone could trick them - although there are a lot of people without degrees who know more than those who have them.
