Read the Guardian or The Times newspaper you need a reading age of 14. Unfortunately since the reading age on average in the UK is that of a 9-year-old child how much of the population would not be able to read anything demanding. Is this why people get the news from Facebook?

No one talks about it but I am aware of.

In the United States the average reading age is 12 to 14 but I don’t know how they measure that and where what is expected of someone of 12 to 14 is lower than it would be in the United Kingdom or whether it’s high or whether it’s the same. And reading ages are declining in the UK and the US.

Maybe children don’t read as many books now are used to easily accessed information from the internet and they don’t have the long dreamlike hours lost in

The Mill on the Floss or or anything comfortable
