A Kilpatrick article from 30 years ago today


I found this newspaper clipping folded up and tucked away in one of my books. I thought it was good enough to keep at the time and I still do.

I have even more appreciation for this piece now that I’ve had a couple 0f years experience teaching English grammar to middle schoolers. And besides, the problem he describes has only worsened during the past three decades.

I hope you resonate with it as much as I do.
