No wonder we are in a recession, all these companies have quit hiring educated people to balance their books and pay the bills. I guess they figured they would save money on the front end, well it is not working....
This is starting to become a great forum.
You make a good point. We have been chastized on this forum for policing the grammar but, all kidding aside, it's scary how uneducated people are. Other countries are laughing at our youth and their lack of education.

I wouldn't be at all afraid to bet that the 18-year old high school-educated Accountant/Administrative Assistant/Billing Clerk works for a very small company owned by his/her parents who don't really care if he/she is illiterate because they can pay him/her next to nothing with no benefit package...of course, I'd love to be a fly on the wall when "Pens In Virginia" recieved a seriously typoed invoice!

Yes, paw paw. How true. I am completely stunned and saddened to read some of these posts. Some impossible to comprehend. What is happening in our schools? Are the teachers teaching? Are they really teachers? These kids are a lost generation to a world of minimum wage jobs, dealing drugs, or prison. Future lifetime welfare recipients. Really sad.

And just so youll know because im sure many of you have been out off school for awhile, MOST teachers dont care about teaching anymore(im not blaming them for how i type) but they are worried more about dress code, and Oh that fourteen year old looks so cute whens she pregnant, i have 3 younger brothers that where never taught how to write in cursive, and one is 9 that was never taught in Kindergraten how to tie his shoes. so im sure youll know that im not the dullest light bulb out there.

I learned to tie my shoes way before I started school. So did my children and grandchildren. I don't think I would lay the blame for that on the teachers.

i did to but, they taught it in kindergraten when i went, they should still be teaching, just in case, but what gets me more is the handwritting thing is, i had to write cursive when i was in fourth grade, or my papers would get trashed, but now they dont even teach it.

Well at least you can take some criticism. As far as the recession is concerned, it started in 2007, long before your president was elected. As far as your typing skills, your brother not writing in cursive or not taught how to tie his shoes, school work needs to be worked on at home as well. I would hope that my seven year old daughters time was not wasted in kindegarten spent learning how to tie her shoes.

Interesting....'laReinadetuvid a' began paying closer attention to her writing skills after she received a little criticism. Good for her! She's not a imbicil after all. Just a bit lazy. Texting does that to our young people.

You are so right. That does have a lot to do with it.

I would like to say that I am proud of you for having a job and doing the best you can. You are obviously working and being productive instead of standing in a welfare line. If the schools are letting kids skate through graduation without having the skills they need to make it in the real world, then it is the fault of our educational system, not yours. You shouldn't have to defend yourself against this.

I'm outraged that Kindergarten teachers aren't teaching kids how to tie their shoes. I hope I'm not going to be expected to teach my own kid how to tie his shoes. What am I paying school taxes for anyway?

If schools keep deteriorating, I'll probably also have to teach my kids to use condoms when they're having sex in the parking lot during lunchtime.

It's like teachers don't even know their job anymore.

I think I am seeing the humor in your statement, but you are not serious are you? But to add to this watch the news, the teachers are teaching kids how to use condoms- hands on that is... But I do hope your statement was not your true thoughts

Yep - teachers aren't teaching, uh-huh. Could it be because they are teaching kids to tie their shoes and wasting time monitoring kids vulgar clothes - things PARENTS SHOULD BE DOING!
