DD1 has had handwritten notes from her teacher in her homework book twice recently, with grammatical and spelling errors. What do you think I should do?

Ah, well i started a thread the other day as dd's teacher had said 'anyfink'.

That was wrong, but this is worse!!!!!

If I were you I would raise it with the head. It's obviously not alright for someone who is not aware that they are making mistakes to then teach your child. They cannot teach properly if they are ignorant of basic rules of spelling and grammar.

seriously, as a one off I couldn't be bothered.

No both from the teacher and signed. I would also expect the TA to know spelling and basic rules of grammar too.

God knows how these teachers pass their course when they can's use English properlyangry

Isn't it incorrect grammar to say "also expect [something] too"? Either the "also" or the "too" is otiose, surely?
