The blind leading the blind?

Among the various applications I reviewed this morning was this gem, from someone who feels that she has what it takes to fix the damage done to today’s children’s writing ability by, presumably, my generation!

“The children of today will have to correct a lot of wrongs by the baby boomer generation, who have also effectively crippled their education system. I aim, and have been extremely successful in returning to the routes of good teaching: engaging with the students’ itnerests, establishing strong relationships in order to establish clear discipline and boundaries, and from there creating interesting lessons where the students’ lead the learning through discussion and hands on tasks before consolidating the work in written form.”

I hope that along with a new, more challenging curriculum, we might also be able to rid schools of teachers who cannot see how badly their own writing is.
