This article was in today's paper. We're not even talking about being well educated, just literate!!! Scary...

COLUMBIA -- Almost 20 percent of the prospective law enforcement officers in the past year at South Carolina's Criminal Justice Academy could not read at a 10th-grade level, a study shows.

The study also showed nearly 4 percent of the 843 candidates were reading below a sixth-grade level, The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Sunday.

Academy Director Hubert Harrell said instructors have encountered students who can't read or comprehend the material presented to them.

"They are functionally illiterate," Mr. Harrell said.
