An ignorant person who can sign his/her name is considered literate for most statistical purposes.

An educated person is an enigma - would you consider a bean-counter with a degree in bean-counting educated?

U know a literate man campaigns ,but an educated man governs ........a literate man may know how to read and write,but this doesnt give him the power to extend thoughts using knowledge and wisdom.....an educated man does that exactly....cause he has the ability to look beyond the obvious realms and possesses the power to seperate wheat from the chaff.

An educated person justifies one's education and applies knowledge on day to day basis, but a literate person may not apply one's knowledge accordingly, even though a literate person knows so many things.

A literate person may have a formal education degree but an educated person does not need one to prove his literacy.

Literature is in terms of high qualification, educated is any person who has had minimum schooling
