Corrupting Composition

Jeffery Zorn has a long and depressing narrative about how university level English Composition programs across America were corrupted by academics so that they do the opposite of what they were supposed to be doing.

George Leef has a shorter piece on the upshot of this: many students are not articulate enough for anyone to want to hire them when they graduate.

I have some rather depressing stories about these topics which I do not have the heart to tell right now.
