Didn't you mean, "Edumacation ain't make you none smarter"? Even so, where "education" is, "the act or process of ... acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life," isn't the statement a bit of an oxymoron?

Yes, having a degree has never been proof of anything except the ability to know how to get by on tests. As my grandfather used to say and he's never been proven wrong, more education does not make you smarter.

I've been bemoaning that fact that I never finished my MBA and it's held me
back from management positions. Well, it goes to show you just how dumb
management can be. They are amongst the herd of wildebeests going over
cliff, chasing a trend without thinking about the consequences.
