Education strikes out

This weekend, I encountered three stellar examples of how our system of education provides. In order:

  • I heard a college student use the phrase curled up in the fetus position.
  • I heard a fan say ignorantest to describe a poor call by an ACC official in Virginia Tech’s win against Cincinnati.
  • I read this quote by Macho Harris. He’s explaining how he finally made one of the big plays expected of him.

    “I knew it, but I wasn’t pressurizing myself about it,” Harris said. “I knew my chance would come.”

Why bother teaching the English language if these are the results we can expect?
