what makes the deficiencies in vocabulary so bad is how many people make excuses for them by saying and i quote "that's the way young people talk nowadays"
I so agree with you gacpl! That statement is so true! Kids dumb their selves down by taking "slang"....
The term "progressive social policy" simply scares me without any explanation.
We have failed I think to give our children the foundation needed for learning because they are allowed to talk lazy language which is what gacpl has pointed out above.
Dr. Carson said int the national prayer day address. "We have dumbed down our society".
Perhaps some of our liberal counterparts can explain "progressive social policy".
i think it might lead to this, but on a serious note. some scientist and sociologist think we are really heading this way.
