To school in is an expression meaning to teach or train, generally a skill or craft.

It is frequently used in the passive to mean that someone had acquired skills:

He was schooled in the craft of stone-masonry.

It can also be used actively:

The poacher schooled his children in the art of catching birds.

The Oxford Dictionary defines schooled as: Educated or trained in a specified activity or in a particular way.
