One can get education from every day living, from the television, from parents, but there are no degrees for that. The degree is the formal presentation at the end of formal education. It is used to signify a specific education achievement. A degree is only representing one form of education though.
Typically education means getting a degree but in my opinion a degree is nothing but a piece of paper that entitles you to a better career. I think you can get education and gain knowledge everywhere whether it be traveling, or gaining experience in the workforce. You do not need to graduate college to get educated.
