  I would be very surprised if only 55/100 native English speakers could read that -- it's been circulating for years, usually without the elitist caveat, so I would suspect that percentage would be much higher.

  And, for those of us who correct first year essays, I should think we can read such materials fluently by now!

  Best,
  James
