What makes "education" TED's most popular topic?

Is the TED community imposing their beliefs upon the website visitors? Are users applying the "education" tag to their conversations in the most visited section for exposure? How do you prefer to be "educated"? What is the best way to acquire, retain, and recall information? Do we need degrees, certificates, or peer validation to be effective teachers?

    Dec 12 2013: It is popular but not just in the formal way. It's not necessary for education to be placed just in educational institutions.

    This popular form of education is based on the wish to reach some knowledge, it's inside inspired education. That's why the pedagogy is trying to research the "leisure time education", and to give some tips to do it the best, without any paper that "proves" your competences for something.
