Current Literacy stats for U.S.

Recommended Posts

I didn't know that technology skills are now a component used to determine the literacy rate. If that is true, I am not surprised that the literacy rate has fallen.  There are many old-timers like myself who were once considered to be well educated/literate, but haven't kept up with the new technologies.  Unless we are talking about bird imitations, I would have no idea how to tweet.

Considering 33% of Americans have a 4 year college degree, the first link claiming that only 2% have college literary levels is pretty difficult to imagine. Must be a pretty hard test.

So I guess we should just accept it and not be concerned?  What happened to "do my best"?
