American vs. English

The Guardian says one in nine adults has no qualifications. I’d have estimated the fraction significantly higher. The good news is, every career in America is open to the unqualified, and they don’t seem any less successful than the highly qualified. Should I be worried for my country, or hopeful for personal success?

      1. Incidentally, it looks like a system that could be modified to work over here, to great effect– if we could keep things like “adult level reading” from being debased like high school diplomas are!
