Do you know what the etymology of the word school is? Originally in ancient Greece rich kids when they wanted to indulge their curiosity would seek out an expert in a subject, pay them money and learn. The word school originally pronounced as scholé meant indulging your curiosity. Fast forward to the modern world and you can literally find an expert in pretty much anything and ask as many questions as you want while you learn.
