One more thing that i forgot, i tried to type:

tab educ, nolabel

tab educ

Both commands show no difference at all on the output provided.
As I mentioned earlier, and as mentioned in the reply from Nick Cox, this option applies to value labels (and educ evidently has no value label). Please see -help label- for an explanation of value labels -- as distinct from variable labels. Note that the -label- command manages both types of labels.
