A Principal's Reflections: Social Media is Not Just For Students - 54 views

  • Some students in public schools are no longer being taught grammar, she believes.
  • Emoticons, happy faces, sad faces, cuz, are just some of the writing horrors being handed in, say professors and administrators at Simon Fraser."Little happy faces ... or a sad face ... little abbreviations," show up even in letters of academic appeal, says Khan Hemani.
