    Default Terrible Spelling

    Is the terrible standard of spelling an indictment of our education system ?or is
    it the direct result of technology, txting, abbreviations being used in chatrooms
    on social networking sites and twitter etc. Poor handwriting seemed to be the
    bain of educated people in the past now it seems to have graduated to their
    spelling
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
    but

    Yes I've only spotted a couple of mistakes in yours so I would have to agree.

    I agree wholeheartedly with what Ber says. The standard of education is appalling and this is evident in the statistics that show we are really poor at the 'three R's'.
