I don't think it is a one size fits all thing. Some people are special, and are amazing self taught or not. While others can be horrible. It seems to me that school mostly teaches the fundamentals and not "how to do your job as a software engineer". Ultimately the people who are motivated to continuously learn and pick up new things will excel more than those who are not motivated.
