The point of this is that English is one of the most illogical languages on the planet. The structure and pronunciation changes according to no defined rules and nearly every, if not every, defined rule that we have regarding pronunciation is readily and easily broken. The US isn’t more literate because our citizens, largely adults and regardless of IQ, are too lazy to put forth the effort to learn to speak and write their own native language, or practice and maintain the skills they learn in school. Keep in mind that is less effort than is displayed by children in most industrialized countries in the world that are tasked with learning English along with their native language. Furthermore, we don’t have enough teachers who are flexible enough to deal with those children who struggle with linguistic skills, rather pushing them on to someone else until there’s no one left to teach them properly.
