Most literate nation in the world? new world ranking..!!
A new world ranking of countries and their literacy rates puts the United States at 7th. Who’s Number one? Finland.
The study, conducted by John W. Miller, president of Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut, analyses trends in literate behaviour and literacy in more than 60 countries. It found that Nordic countries are among the most literate in the world, but countries in the Western Hemisphere didn’t do well.
Miller has concentrated his academic work for four decades on literacy, producing “America’s Most Literate Cities” survey from 2003 to 2014 in collaboration with Central Connecticut’s Center for Public Policy and Social Research.
