I just read a post on romance section and it got me wondering if a school cert holder can be said to be educated .

Yes, it depends on the individual and how exposed he is intellectually, being educated is different from schooling...
I have a friend who is full of intellects, he can read very well, speak very well and write very well, he expose his mind with lots of books and activities, everything is has done are self thought and he understands life way better now some of our universities counterparts....

So the answer is yes, you can be a secondary school graduate and be educated....

Yes
As soon as you're done with secondary school, according to how the curriculum was designed, you are fit and educated already to explore any part of literacy. That is called general education and in other sense literacy. Going to university or college means trying to go further and specialize.
Now that is all theory.

In the practical world, most notable in a country with shattered system of education like our country Nigeria, many people find it very difficult to believe one is a complete literate if he/she even have a university education. Simple reason is because most secondary school have very poor infrastructure to actually make a secondary school graduate a literate, with bad and underpaid teachers, bad curriculum planning, lack of laboratory and practical exercise for student to make meaning of what they were thought. This at the end of the day make people to want to believe a university graduate as educated(a literate) rather than a secondary school graduate.

But using university as a judgment for literacy is faulty, literacy and it real purpose means a person is able to read, write and do basic numerical and logical computation of every living with relative ease.

In conclusion, literacy is more a practical concept rather than anything tied to certifications and theories
