What does "ill-educated" mean? Does it mean "doesn't know in the subject" or "know the subject but based on the wrong information" ? Thanks.
It simply means the person does not have a good education.

Hi,

It simply means a person has been poorly educated.

Best wishes, Clive

ill-educated is not a real word. It is commonly mistaken for uneducated. However, ill-advised is when something is done without wise consideration or something happens as a result of bad advise (usually an unwanted outcome).
Or " ill-informed".

Wrong.

As aforementioned it means of poor education, unlike uneducated, which means of no education.
