Bill Gates gets schooled?

The title is from one of the articles in business week.The story is about how Bill Gates takes efforts to save America education.He and others execs are still struggling in their school reform.No one knows whether their dream will come true.

The title is easy.But I can\'t understand the whole sentence.

Does anyone can explain it to me ?

Update:

Sorry,I think I put it in a wrong way.

I just don't understand the meaning of the title 'Bill Gates gets schooled'.

Update 2:

T40,我蠻同意你的想法,可是你寫在補充意見欄的話,我是沒法給你點數的喔

    Bill Gates gets "schooled"

    雙關語,第一層意思,BG致力於挽救美高中生輟學的問題,倡議以修改學校體制為方法。(該文針對其以小學校取代大學校之改革實驗作評論)

    此時 schooled 雖以過去分詞呈現,但指的是他改革的目標(學校/教育)。

    第二層意思,則指出BG的改革,並未達到他預期的目標,甚至有可以議論其完全失敗的空間。因此,他在這個教育/學校改革的實驗上,受到了教訓(schooled)。

    此時schooled的真意就顯現出來了。

    理想/夢想可以很遠大很崇高,但真正去執行的時候,卻會遭遇現實上的層層困難,讓人領悟到很多事情原來並非想像中的那般簡單....這就是比爾蓋茲(學到的教訓)

    Bill Gates didn't finish his college education (Havard University). I don't believe he was homeschooled. This is what I think the title means: "Bill Gates, you didn't even finish your college degree, how do you know how to fix the education?"

    我想應該是:

    這篇故事是有關於比爾蓋茲花了多大的努力去挽救美國的教育(體制)。他(Bill Gates)和其他的實行者仍然在為了他們學校制度改革而奮鬥。(然而),沒有人知道他們的夢想是否為成真。

    最後倒數第三字是"會",not為~~

    Bill Gates gets schooled?...我想應該是意指-Bill Gates有受到學校教育(制度)嗎?因為Home-schooled代表在家學習的人。那麼當school作動詞用,應該是有學習的意思!!
