A couple of weeks ago a Year Twelve student from the local school gave me a questionaire on employment in the IT industry.
That was one of the questions. Most of the others had similar errors.
I have two questions of my own.
1. Does the school check questionnaires, letters, etc before they go to members of the public?
Well, obviously not.
Or at least I hope it was not checked by a staff member, because if it was, our schools are even worse than I think they are.
2. How is it that a reasonably intelligent boy in Year Twelve has such appalling literacy?
If a person who is no dimwit can get through twelve years of schooling and have no idea how to spell or construct a sentence, what the heck has he been doing all that time?
And what have schools been doing with all my tax money?
