going on to the websites of local schools, clicking on the 'letters' link and checking the letters they send home to parents for errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar? smile

No, you're not sad at all!

I refer you to a post I made a couple of days ago:

"When I started my first teaching job in a primary school seven years ago, my ignorant and completely illiterate head teacher sent out a letter to all the parents saying how delighted he was that I had joined the staff and that my appointment would "compliment the existing teaching staff".

Of course I had to spend the entire first term going round telling my fellow teachers how lovely they were looking today and how their outfits really suited them!!! grin

If I had been a parent at that school I would have been horrified . . . ."

When I have to start thinking about schools for my LO, I hope that I will be able to check that the head and the teachers have a basic grasp of the English language if that is what they are going to teach my little boy!

And yes, I am an insane pedant!
