Substitute teacher gets fired for ridiculing students for bad grammar.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opini...mn/1291222001/

Thoughts?

Lets face it though way too many grown ass adults can't tell the difference between your and you're.

And no majority of US kids cannot compete on a global level. I was in Poland over Christmas and many of the HS age kids already speak at least two languages fluently. And lets not even get into math. What equates to college level math in the US is done in the 8 grade there.

I remember one of my High School English classes. The teacher made us write an essay on assigned book readings in class. We had 45 minutes and the essay had to be grammatically perfect. I hated it at the time. But I am thankful many years later. She did correct the papers and gave them back to us. We had the opportunity to correct the marked up mistakes to raise our grade by one letter grade.

This is also why I cringe when I see the incorrect use of seen instead of saw and prolly instead of probably.

Just like the word "too" has disappeared from this forum. The problem is that people today write "textlish" not English.

I remember in 4th grade I was talking in class (to a cute girl). Teacher told me to stop, and I did it again. I had to write 1000 times I will not talk in class. This wasn't all that long ago (I'm 28), and you can bet I didn't do that again afterward. Now teachers get disciplined for correcting grammar.

I was paddled in front of the class by my 9th grade history teach. That was the usual punishment. As a result I didn't grow up and become a F'cking snow flake.

What a bigot! Teachers like this need to check their education privilege fast.

Having poor grammer is simply just a lifestyle choice, people need to open their minds!

I think your being to harsh...

I don't buy the whole "I'm just typing short-hand as it's faster" excuse. It's just plain ambivalence at this point. Sad. It's not that these people are dumb either, it's laziness pure and simple. Anyone who has the intelligence to fire up a computer or a cell phone, to succeed at life to the point of owning a BMW, certainly has the capacity to understand "to" vs. "too" and "your" vs. "you're." They simply do not care how they are perceived. I don't get it.

Spotted this just now on another thread. Timely. Can you imagine the horror if a parent in the US had this on their car? Here in the US, little Sally, the future part time make up counter girl will be coddled and given a cookie for trying and failing. While little Ling Ling, the future nuclear scientist, is smacked upside the dome for getting the answer wrong and told to go study harder.

We are losing.

I feel it is also racist and oppressive to make immigrants speak English. We should be more open minded and learn their languages instead.

I feel all languages of the imperialistic European colonizers should be banned, as they might be deemed offensive to people of color. (Yeah I joke but wait for, you know this is coming next..)

Stay woke my comrade.

Bad grammar is simply a geographical marker in some places, and I think we ought to not get involved with the historical significance passing this bad grammar from generation to generation. That goes for spelling and the spoken word as well.

As we try to "teach" people the "right way" of the English language, the small cultural markers of certain groups are lost as they assimilate into what the man wants to see as a modern vanilla culture.

By the way, I'm the child of Hispanic immigrants who were also migrant farm workers. I grew up speaking Spanish, only learning English through the American school system. In my spare time I sometimes enjoy playing devil's advocate even though I don't necessarily agree with certain views I may bring up, it's usually more to spark the conversation than anything.
