Education and Learning Without a Degree

The education system has converted knowledge to a set of degrees which are put in hierarchy. Quite often it is so strong that we tend to assume that degree is knowledge. But a degree at best can be a way to screen potential contributors. Is there a better substitute of knowing how much knowledge or wisdom one has without using degrees?

I agree with Jagish' thinking. I believe that in the future, after a level of "degree", anyone can have a personal training in a desired specific interest area.

Education should be continuous learning through experience culminating into a knowledge base which is versatility used. Hence there is no comparison between education with a mere degree and education acquired through experiential learning.
