Literacy Falls for Graduates From College, Testing Finds

Here is a depressing study reported in the NY Times (registration required). Students are less literate today after graduating from College than they were a decade ago.

Only 40% were judged proficient and 31% were rated to have high-level skills.


The latest grads read less and spend more time watching TV.

This comment is completely unrelated, but I have no where else to put this. This is a classy blog. I haven't paid that much attention to it so am late in realizing it. Just a time issue, just didn't get to it.

Not that I want to be classy myself, it's strictly a quality I admire in others. But like I said, classy blog. Hey...Gravitas!
