"Mis-Educating Me" - C Earl Campbell Da 3rd, 2007

Being involved in education - and having directly trained so many course delegates over the past almost-6 years - I've come to realize that many students leave school without grasping even the basics.

Sadly, I bumped into an example just this morning.

I had received an email from a website that my former high school uses to broadcast information about upcoming class reunions, etc. So I clicked on the link to the site just to see what was new.

On the site's home page, there's a section which features one school alumni member each day. Today's alumni was a woman who graduated around 1990, and part of her profile was shown.

Here is exactly what she had written regarding her current occupation:

Secritary / Recieptionist

Oh dear. I hope she regularly uses her spellcheck at work.

Oops. Perhaps she was too busy flirting with boys back in grade 2!

Perhaps she's actually a comedian?

I've just finished my semeseter teaching English Composition at my local community college. It is fair to say that many students "edit" their work by using spell check to accept whatever the first suggested option happens to be. "I think you meant to use 'bonier' not 'boner'.

Needless to say, I too have left a misspelled word in my last posting for you to identify.

If you could give more detailed information on some, I think it is even more perfect, and I need to obtain more information!

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
