Please help me with this: Would you say:

First of all, you will definitely hear both ways. Language is fuzzy.

That said, "based on" is the more common usage here.

So, in general, "based on/upon" = "basarse en/sobre," and "based in" es más para decir dónde una empresa se encuentra geográficamente.

Education is based on a lot of things.

Generally "IN" means adentro de... "ON" means sobre de...

this is right: education is based in a lot of things
Spanish: La educación se basa en un montón de cosas

Cheers

I think it would be "based on a lot of things" because if you say "based in..." it means that other things are based on education---|-

That's my take- did you want that translated too'
