I'm tempted to suggest that with an education a person would be better able to get by without money, intellectually, spiritually and philosophically, than would someone with money but no education.
It seems that unless an uneducated person has a great deal of money (to lose), the money will soon disappear anyway. Education won't disappear.
Maybe this is a bit too pat of an answer though. No amount of learning, without extremely advanced spiritual/maturational resolve, can help anyone cope with extreme poverty.
Everyone has enough education to know when they're hungry...
