Synonyms of "Education" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between ~~but she focused on her education and remained resolute and ~~but she was focused on her education and remained resolute. ?
A: The general meaning is the same, but the difference is what aspect of situation is being emphasised. "But she focused on her education and remained resolute" emphasises the action of "focusing". "but she was focused on her education" emphasises her state of mind. Which is more appropriate will depend on the context where it is being used.

"...but she focused on her education and remained resolute" would be used in a sentence like the following, "Karen was very upset by her breakup, but she focused on her education and remained resolute." This emphasises that the action she took after her breakup was to study hard.

"...but she was focused on her education and remained resolute" would be used in a sentence like the following, "Karen would have been upset by the break up if she were less busy, but she was focused on her education and remained resolute." This emphasises her state of mind during the period of the breakup.

——

The meanings may vary if used in a sentence. I’m just trying my best to help you distinguish them based on your question!
Q: What is the difference between education policy and educational policy ?
A: *Technically*, education is a noun and educational is an adjective.
So I think that if you follow that rule, "education policy" is policy that deals with education. And "educational policy" is policy that teaches people about something (meaning the policy teaches it).

Like an educational (TV) program teaches you something, but an education program is a program about education.

BUT, many people use the two interchangeably. You often see people write "educational policy" to mean "policy that deals with education" or "policy pertaining to education." Maybe because "educational" sounds more official.

This may depend on if you are using American English or British English I'm not sure. (But in American English, I often hear people say "educational policy.")
Q: What is the difference between further education and higher education and tertiary education ?
A: Higher Education - college or university after high school
Tertiary Education - college/university OR trade/technical schooling after high school
Further Education - trade/technical schooling

All of them are after high school. Also, we usually say "continuing education" in America instead of "further education". In the US, we do not usually say tertiary education.
Q: What is the difference between education and schooling ?
A: There is no difference.
"My education was good" means the same thing as
"My schooling was good"
