Experience or Education - Is One Better Than the Other?

It seems to me that the fire service struggles with a debate that is taking on many similarities to the fog vs. solid stream debate. This debate is newer but is discussed with the same vigor. It is a debate about education in the fire service and its importance in comparison to experience.
