Just a little side note. Norway and Sweden have incredible high literacy rates which is often credited to their schools systems. This is a contributing factor. But one thing often overlooked is the fact that their languages are much less complicates than English. Since it is easier to learn, of course more people learn to read.
English is one of the most difficult languages to learn to read because most of our phonics conventions only apply 60-80% of the time.
Since I have no first hand experience with foriegn school systems I really dont' have an opinion on this question.
