Well I'm no Marxist scholar, but I would have thought it was obvious that education increases the productive capacity of the worker dramatically. So it is part of the production process, that eventually creates value. It follows that you must be wrong.

If Marx agrees with you, then Marx must also be wrong, but not having sufficient education in the intricacies of Marx's theories, my opinion on that matter is of less "value".
