Well the 98% is a number anyone could pull out of anywhere.  Additionally, even with the "Old Deluder Satan Law" literacy wasn't necessarily a goal for females, or the poor, or slaves...And even the level of knowledge defined as "literate" then would be insufficient for today.  The national census, which did attempt to tally the literate didn't even begin until 1790.

  "Without public education, we might as well set our clocks back 300 years and
  restrict education to only those that can afford it." Tom-Tom Hansen.

  I don't think that the education in the Colonies 300 years ago was only for the "well off". If that were the case then why was there a 98% literacy rate back then?
