White House Fails English

The recent experience of retired English teacher Yvonne Mason echoes the exasperation felt by many of us who spent the entire first two years of high school English doing nothing but arcane grammar exercises out of a workbook.

It may be too much to ask in this age in which English teachers no longer feel the need to teach grammar (and English majors aren't even required to study it), but shouldn't we expect better than this from the office of the highest governmental official in the land?

Argh. [Facepalm.]

I might suggest these English language resources.
