"Educators" of the liberal variety like to use this parlor trick to assure us that NAM's don't need to be graded severely for their pitiful spelling.

One needs to be able to spell, use punctuation, and pronounce words correctly to achieve competence in communicating with their fellow human beings.

Spelling is important.


If we de-emphasize this, its the beginning of a slipperly slope that will end up with the better students sounding as stupid as rap-"artists" do now, which is to say pathetic.

anonynous 22.29. Very insightful comment. However, let's not fall into the PC trap - i.e. if we dont like something we refuse to speak about it. In this instance we shuld just try to see how we - society - might be able to benefit from the evidence.
