A person can be called literate if he can at the least read and write the basics but education takes a lot more. An educated man can be defined by his deeds and actions.
Education makes you intelligent to know how to achieve your goals in life which literacy alone cannot do. Definitely both the words have a quite different meanings when explored.

"A love affair with knowledge will never end in heartbreak" - Michael Garrett Marino
Now a days a child is first taken to letters and later starts education. Also one cannot think of getting education without using books and other utensils such as computer these days. More over now one cannot limit to be literate in ones own mother tongue alone. Two or more languages might be necessary to know more in a particular subject.
There is n need to confuse between the two usages.

The son of a gardener, even if he is illiterate, can become a good gardener. The expertise he gets from his father and the experience his father shares with him are the factors that decide his course of learning. But the same thing cannot be said for the son of an engineer or an author etc. Here, in order to get expertise , he will have to use the key of literacy.
In a nut-shell we can say that it is possible to get education without literacy and literacy is only one of the various means of getting education.
