Where did I mention "university"?

Quote "Young people aged between 16 and 19 have been found to possess only a “basic” grasp of maths and English, with nine million people of working age having low literacy or numeracy skills.

The report, conducted by the OECD (the Operation for Economic Co-Operation and Development) found that out of 23 developed nations, English teens had the lowest literacy rates and the second to lowest numeracy rates
. "

Or

"Around 16 per cent, or 5.2 million adults in England, can be described as "functionally illiterate". They would not pass an English GCSE and have literacy levels at or below those expected of an 11-year-old. "

So Euroscepticism correlates with literacy rates now?



correlation is weak at best.

It actually seems to me that London is a pit of illiteracy (comparatively speaking). Why then did they vote remain there?
