I don't know how many of you guys know this but my father has 4 degrees that he still uses on a daily basis. Also I think there is a fellowship thrown in there. Still not sure what that is but I am pretty sure it's helped him make some money recently.
Apart from actually going to school to learn stuff, he makes it a point to watch 22 hours of news on the tv everyday. HAHA ok, maybe not 22 hours worth, but he watches the news A LOT, but not because he doesn't have anything better to do. It is simply because learning is part of who he is and what he does.
In school, for the most part we all got good grades. That is what was expected out of us. To read our books, listen in class, do our homework and LEARN. I can remember many times getting frustrated because I would just want to know the answer, but my dad knew that if I actually looked it up myself, or figured it out for myself, or tried and failed, I would learn a lot more than just being given the answer.
One of the more recent things he learned to do was make wooden bowls.

Not only is he always learning himself, he helps others learn as well...A few pictures to prove my point.
