    Re: meaning?

    What was the context for this?

    Perhaps it means that when you have no food, it doesn't make sense to spend money on schooling?

    Hi Barb, can we use school as a verb?

    I'm not a teacher, but my dictionary (Reader's Digest Complete Wordfinder) specifies that "school" can correctly function not only as a noun but also as a verb.

    For example,

    "She has received extensive schooling in linguistics."
    "He is thoroughly schooled in international politics."

    Both of these sound just fine to me.

    Is this what you meant?
