A Call for a Public Investigation
The teaching of grammar is fundamental
to literacy, but the record of the National Council of Teachers of
English is abysmal when it comes to grammar. For the last fifteen years
I have tried to work within the organization to improve the situation,
but NCTE does not appear to be interested. This section of the web site
briefly reviews the struggle. Unable to work effectively within the organization,
the only option left is to go outside it and call for a public investigation.
It is time for the American people to take control of English Education
away from these "experts."
