You Don't Say....

     Oh, gee, colour this blog surprised:

More than 50 percent of [American] students at four-year schools and more than 75 percent at two-year colleges lacked the skills to perform complex literacy tasks.

Don't worry, I'll spare all of you the rant you're surely expecting.  I will say this, though: any of my compatriots smugly entertaining the idea that this is just an American phenomenon should definitely think again.
