I really don't understand education today. Someone seems to think that, because of technology, students no longer need to learn to think for themselves because they can find everything online. But what if something catastrophic happened and all of our technology was lost? People would be so confused and wouldn't know how to live an unplugged life. Spelling sure is important. Words are important. Writing is important. Well, you and I are dinosaurs, I guess. What we think and feel doesn't seem to matter in the whole scheme of things.

Spelling is still taught a lot over here, but it should be embedded into the curriculum anyway. One problem we have over here is that spell checks are automatically defaulted to American spelling. Another thing that students forget is that if they copy and paste off the internet and it was an American site, the teacher can tell because of the missing u or whatnot. The students can be so stupid!
