Dumming Down Are Kidz

Apologies to The Blogfather for appropriating the title of his book then deliberately misspelling it.

Neal Boortz tells us about what academics in Great Britain are doing to combat commonly misspelled words: accept the misspellings as OK.

Says Boortz:
Translation: If a student simply can't come up with the right answers ... start accepting the wrong answers as right. That solves your problem. American education at work.
We've had that here in American gummint-run skoolz for years. It's called inventive spelling.
