I mean.. if your gonna insult an Admin you should at least use some uppercase letters and use proper grammar. What do kids learn in 3rd grade these days?
This is going to sound like a typical old guy going on about how good the old days were. It's not, I was there in the old days. They weren't that good. Anyway, I went back to college later in life, Freshman year I took English Comp. The professor and I got to be friends because we had a roughly the same tastes in literature.
One night we were sitting around bsing. He pulled out some papers he was grading and asked me my opinion. I was rather shocked. They were basically on the same level I had learned in the seventh grade.
It's not the kid's fault. I've seen the subjects my three sons took in high school. The curriculum is weighted with what I would call politically corect, feel good crap classes. Not nearly enough emphasis is placed on core curriculum. There's a lot to be said for the three R's. Call me a fossil, but I think our children are being short changed by the education system or tax dollars pay for.
