spelling error news storyPicture it now, your son comes home with a bad grade for spelling and you feel you’re about to hit the roof. Then you get an email from his teacher and realize that your poor son has bad teaching methods.

A form tutor of Gleed Girls’ Technology College in Spalding, Linconshire sent an email to parent with on last count 14 spelling and grammar errors. What makes it worse is that this was sent after an Education Secretary had told teachers to clamp down on poor spelling and grammar.

Marie Clair (spokeswomen- Plain English Campaign) stated to the Telegraph paper “I think this teacher should go back to school themselves.” Well Marie on this occasion we have to agree with you. In a world of mobile phones and text language, children need more help.

All we can say is how embarrassing.
