What a hoax. Today's students have no writing skills and without
electricity they are dead in the water. They can't even write a work order
or read a pay stub or financial statement let alone any legal document they have
to read and sign.I don't call computer dependent spell checkers
as reading or writing abilities and it shows every day in this news media and my
own spell checkers system that can't get it right either. So with all this
inability to even know if spell checker is getting it right how can the proof
read what they print from a computer?More of educations flaws trying
to justify computers to replace the real meaning of human abilities with digital
erroneous GUI. We have an education system that has made "garbage out"
the level of education it has created and turned loose in the US.Computers should not be used to replace human abilities and that is what
education has been doing to by indoctrination and lack of qualified and educated
people teaching children the errors of the digital world. They think the errors
are normal and can't correct computer error outputs.
This is depressing. Writing is perhaps the most important skill anyone can
learn, because if you cannot communicate your ideas are of no worth. I think we
need to place a greater emphasis on writing in our schools.
