These statistics were based on the results of licensure examinations for 45 groups of professionals. The main goal of this study is to check the correlation between what students declared and their performance in reading comprehension of texts. In presenting the material, I have been constantly aware of the fact that popular opinions on the topics discussed have to a large extent been determined by factors having nothing to do with scientific research. Other report provided data about education standard; indicating that deterioration had occurred in all fields of education in the society.
