Are Spartans educated..

I just think they got education only regarding army, unsc or any other computer engineering... Nothing more I guess
Nope. Master Chief always struggles when trying to count past 10.
I'm assuming that IIs and IIIs would have a High School equivalent in addition to their military schooling. IVs are public school, though. Watch out for them.
Yes. In the Halo novel The Fall of Reach, a pretty extensive education is a part of the Spartan II training, and then the Spartan III program is modeled after that (although it may be abbreviated given the circumstances).

According to the text, they learn world history and advanced mathematics; they might have learned about other topics too. No telling what the IRL equivalent would be. Probably on par with undergraduate work or possibly even graduate/doctoral work.

I think some would say they have earned the equivalent of a Ph.D. in combat.

EDIT: Also, based on some other posts I've seen, I can't help but suggest that stuff like this be posted in the Halo Universe forum, or the General Discussion forum. The Halo Infinite forum is devoted specifically to the game, while this topic is more general.

Yeah, he gets to 5 and falls apart.
They definitely get made to watch '300' :)

Actually, I think this history is specifically referenced at one point in the book.

Yes-especially ancient Sparta and their war tactics-how a small group of supersoldiers can fend off an untrained horde.
Their education is certainly broader than just tactics and military: you see how broad Spartans' knowledge is in a variety of ways: Kat's incredible technical ability, Noble-6's pilot training (would require a significant amount of mathematics), Jun and Linda's sniping would require pretty advanced mathematics as well.

Spartan-IVs by comparison will have received far less education than the previous generations as their roles as spartans comes from their experience. Some may be specialists in certain areas (e.g. Vale), but beyond combat training their fundamental experiences etc. are whatever they had in their pre-Spartan life
If memory serves, Spartan-IIs had a pretty comprehensive education, including (I think) some knowledge of orbital mechanics. The Spartan-IIIs, though, had a much more limited education, which focused heavily on the skills necessary to fight the Covenant. The Spartan-IVs, being created from adult volunteers, are not given any addition education on becoming a Spartan.
my memory of these things may be a bit fuzzy though.

Not to worry, I answered the question above.

It certainly is! In The Fall of Reach :)

Yes, I mentioned the book in my initial answer above.
Nope. Master Chief always struggles when trying to count past 10.
Chief ,initially ,must learn to get past of this '6' or halo infinite if he wants to get passed and gain the fps throne

They actually moved away from numbering the games so Chief wouldn't be stressed all the time.

Yes. I believe in that novel, it's remarked that, essentially at 13-14 yrs old, they had the bodies of 18 yr old athletes and the minds a match for any UNSC scientist. Something like that, it's a poor paraphrase and I don't have time to look up the exact passage.

No problem, that sounds very familiar to me. Even if the augmentations failed they were still a huge asset to the UNSC.

Exactly, that should be indicative of their level of fitness, both physically and mentally, that even those S-II washouts that could not be put in cryo and later revived for successful augmentation, i.e., those with severe disability post-op, could be rehabilitated as best as possible and put to use in strategic and scientific roles.
Well seeing as Spartan-IIs (idk about other Spartan generations) know the basic fundamentals that go into flying, plotting courses, and weapon systems, of UNSC battleships, as well as the other basic bridge officer tasks, I feel it's safe to assume they know very, extremely advanced math. Literal rocket science.

It always makes me think how unbelievably smart bridge officers of space faring ships have to be to navigate three Galaxy and be required to know how to navigate without the use of an on board computer.

Yeah, that’s a good point. There usually isn’t any info on how smart these folks are. I guess if I want to be a bridge officer I’ll have to bump up my hours on Khan Academy.
