An education beyond intelligence most likely results in rejection of the information due to a lack of understanding.
Or parroting information without understanding, like so many students do on their exams that ultimately lead to their graduation and completion of education.
On the heirarchy of knowledge, data becomes information, information becomes knowledge, and knowledge becomes wisdom. In education, we present previously understood information in hopes of developing knowledge. In reality, it's nothing more than data to the student, some of whom will internalize it as desired, but many will not.
You can test this with people. All you have to do is listen to someone describe something a little technical, such as selecting a sorting algorithm, a specific PRNG algorithm, or a statistical model, and then ask them "why?"
