Nor do I, but I *have the elements of *an education.

A freshman course in a teachers' college might be called "The Elements of Education." It would likely be a general "how it can be accomplished" survey.

"Elements" has a variety of meanings. Here it seems intended to mean "rudiments," as in "He hasn't even the rudiments of an education." In a phrase like "the elements of education," it's more likely to mean "deep, universal principles": the kind of things we end up knowing about rather than knowing.
