Experience trumps education hands down.
If your education is your experience, then you have best of all worlds.
Education is ‘what’, experience is ‘how’.
In real world we favor ‘verb’ than ‘noun’.
Education is doing what you know. Experience is knowing what is do.
If education is the best experience, then experience is best education.
PS : Again Self learned experience is valued much higher textbook experience. You learn to hunt in a jungle and not in a zoo.
