Should colleges and universities be penalized for graduating English-speaking students who cannot speak, write, and spell proper English?
Many graduates of US institutions of higher learning cannot use proper English. K-12 teachers in particular, but really every English-speaking, non-disabled graduate, should be required to demonstrate both good diction & good grammar.
It seems there is a subtle, insidious & invidious class-based outcome otherwise. Can non-fluent regular people, i.e. not geniuses, get jobs? I submit that schools who perpetuate this form of illiteracy should be penalized, perhaps fined. What do you think?
