CAN’T READ, CAN’T COUNT

No surprises here:

One in 10 Australian university graduates is semi-literate and would fail to interpret the instructions on a box of headache tablets, an international study shows.

A new OECD comparison of adult literacy and numeracy, published in Britain yesterday, reveals 10 per cent of Australia’s 16 to 19-year-olds fall below the minimum standard for literacy.

Nearly 20 per cent are below the minimum standard for numeracy, meaning they would struggle to interpret the gauge on a petrol tank.

The whole education system is a gigantic pyramid of lies.
