Not only is this child’s spelling atrocious and teacher’s “Wow” grade damaging to child, but lesson itself is insidious. Should teachers be giving writing assignments to children about how and why they should run away from home?
Spelling affects people’s lives. A person who doesn’t spell words correctly can’t communicate effectively with employees, supervisors, customers, patients, clients, business associates, contractors, or parents. He or she can’t be sure of exact meaning of misspelled words in a contract, mortgage, medical consent form, or other crucial documents or instructions.
Invented spelling also makes a bad impression on employers and college admissions officers. Yet many public schools no longer think spelling is important enough to spend time on during school day.
Parents, invented spelling is yet another reason why you should seriously consider taking your children out of public school and looking for better education alternatives elsewhere.
The Resources section in "Public Schools, Public Menace" describes many low-cost, quality education alternatives you can take advantage of right now.
