Literally Littered with Illiteracy

There’s some ‘alliteration’ for you! My great concern though, isrepparttar fact that there are too many today who wouldn’t understandrepparttar 107995 title or knowrepparttar 107996 meaning of ‘alliteration’ (a repetition of words beginning withrepparttar 107997 same letter – as in Peter Piper picked a peck......). You might ask, "What has this to do with Internet Home Based Business?". I'll get to that.

I’m a member of a number of forums and in each, at some point, and often on a number of occasions, there is long discussion regardingrepparttar 107998 standard of literacy among graduates these days (or overrepparttar 107999 last twenty years or so). It's perfectly obvious in every forum that many people don’t have evenrepparttar 108000 most basic skills when it comes to grammar and spelling.

Perusing as many websites as I do on a daily basis, as do all those who make their livings through home based business, I sometimes find myself despairing for some of those who have recently been throughrepparttar 108001 so called ‘educational institutions’ that pass as schools in western countries. I am Australian, I have spoken with many inrepparttar 108002 U.S., Britain and Canada and it would seem thatrepparttar 108003 problem isn’t only relevant to any one country or area.

Even when I worked inrepparttar 108004 ‘real’ world, I had occasion to hire graduates who, of course, needed to fill out an application. I still have a couple of extraordinary examples of ‘education failing miserably’.

I posed earlier, "What does this have to do with Internet Home Based Business?". When you consider thatrepparttar 108005 level of literacy required to put together a reasonable quality website, fill it with passable content and promote it to search engines andrepparttar 108006 Internet population in general, is beyondrepparttar 108007 average High School graduate's writing (spelling and grammar) cabilities, this is indeed a huge concern. Of course, you not only have to be able to write but also have to be able to read and understand others.

Where will we find ourselves in ten or fifteen years if something is not done now to remedy this long-standing problem. Time and again throughoutrepparttar 108008 years I have heard people complain aboutrepparttar 108009 quality of grammar and/or spelling of our graduates, let alonerepparttar 108010 ability to create and write a good article, some reasonable website content or a passable essay.
