"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.
