Education teaches a person how to live his/her life - by developing his/her mind and equipping him/her with desired knowledge and skill to deal with realities of life.
The planets Jupiter, Moon & Mercury play a significant role in cognitive accomplishment. When these planets have favorable effect on the 2nd house (primary school) 4th house (high school & college) and the 9th house (higher studies) one may acquire excellent education. With the careful evaluation of the strength of Jupiter, Moon & Mercury influencing these houses, the academic performance of a student may be indicated. A planet has strength if it is exalted, in its own sign, in its friendly sign and unaspected by a malefic planet. On the other hand, if these planets are weak, or placed in inimical signs, joined with malefic planets or having aspect of these planets, one gets hindrances and distractions and is unable to use his full potential. Further, when second and fifth houses and their lords are badly affected, the person has little or no education.
