The School of Hard Knocks is an idiomatic phrase meaning the painful education one gets from life's usually negative experiences, often contrasted with formal education. It is a phrase which is most-typically used by a person to claim a level of wisdom imparted by life experience, which should be considered at least equal in merit to academic knowledge. It is a response that may be given when one is asked about his or her education, particularly if they do not have an extensive formal education but rather life experiences that should be valued instead. It may also be used facetiously, to suggest that formal education is not of practical value compared with life experience.
