Who Needs Proper Grammar in Education?


This submission comes directly from an e-mail that was sent out to a number of technology and education professionals through a listserv posting. There are a number of mailing lists out there that I feel are great resources to have at the educational technology field members' disposal that help to feed on others' ideas and experience in using IT to benefit the quality of education in schools. These people often have many years experience and offer great insight, so when postings come around that are clearly missing basic sentence structure, punctuation, grammar, etc. and especially the ability to convey thoughts and ideas in a meaningful way, I am really taken aback. The following submission, as an example, was so poorly written it made my head hurt. And that's how I knew I had to file it away under 'Havening Problems.' Read on and let the hilarity ensue...

Subject: Forms online

If you are using any and is not that expensive , will you please let me know . Is their any software that can be integrated with blackbaud other than infosnap.

The use of large words such as 'immunization' and 'integrated' really throws me for a loop, but a simple F7 in Word should have fixed most of this up so we still have a major "fail" here. I'm just thankful that everyone on my team knows how to write a basic query e-mail!

LOL. IMHO Text message shortcuts are at least a contributor to poor grammar and spelling - people start thinking in terms of the symbol rather than the true words.  Another is the acclimation of other cultures, where sentence constructs which are nearly incomprehensible to us may be reasonably acceptable - perhaps that is at work here as well (apart from seemingly laziness or other influence).  These combine with the dumbing-down of our society by holding back achievers, or by lowering standards for publicly acceptable speech and actions (relaxed at both school and work, in addition to other venues).  I can certainly honor a person's heritage but not be required to accept the intricacies of their vernacular (such as with "Ebonics") as the only way to communicate.  "Bad" and "Funky" were once quite descriptive to me of items I might prefer to not be around, but "bad" is the new "good"  or "tough" thanks to Michael Jackson, and thus "Funky" is acceptable and even admirable, apparently no matter the odor.  "Gay" used to be "happy" - now I don't care to use the word for fear of misinterpretation.  Still not sure if I can safely use "queer" without retribution.  I realize language is a fairly live entity, but the bottom line is that the speaker has the duty to make his point clear - in thought as well as media. 

Excerpt is still funny, though the trend is unfortunate.

Grammar lays the groundwork for effective communication. Just as an improperly configured telephone wire can cause static during a phone conversation, improper grammar can likewise affect the meaning and clarity of an intended message. Grammar makes written content more readable and in turn more interesting. If it is necessary to repeatedly reword sentences while reading, the flow becomes disrupted and involvement in the story halted. Grammar skills are useful in every aspect of life from education to leadership, and social life to employment opportunities. They are equally important at home where children learn their grammatical patterns from their parents and family. This puts the next generation at an immediate disadvantage if learning incorrectly. http://www.samishleather.com
