    distantly related

    Education is distantly related to industry.

    I am unsure of the correctness of use of 'distantly related' in the above.

    ( 'Distantly related' is used here to mean that they are not closely or directly related to each other.)

    Re: distantly related

    ((Not a teacher)

    How about:

    Education is remotely connected to industry.
    Education is far related to industry.

    Here "distantly related" means that is not related to the level it should have been.

    I hope this make it clear.
