Grammatical Errors Not Best Way To Start Race For Top Education Position In Wisconsin
Republicans produce more humor when they claim to be serious. Take the case of Wisconsin State Representative Don Pridemore.
First, James is a college professor of language, and finds this type of grammatical lapse, especially from one wishing to be head of the Department of Public Instruction, unforgivable.
Second, (from my perspetive) how do folks like Pridemore hire staff, and pay them when they do such a lousy job with what one can argue is the most important press release for the entire month?
Okay, so I’m not a teacher, but I was raised by a family of teachers aka union thugs, and if I ever put out a press release like this one, they’d lose all respect for me.
Here’s what they’d probably have to say about this press release:
“Pridemore” is a proper noun and should be capitalized. That’s so basic!
Look at the first sentence. It should read, ”THE possibility” not “TO possibility.” That’s just laziness. Sheesh.
For the love of God, ”Superintendent” is spelled incorrectly! We raised you better than this.
The comma should be inside the quotation marks after “ideas.”
There should be a comma instead of a period after “change that” before “Pridemore added.”
“…expects to reach a decision on the race.” Please re-word that so it makes more sense.
This press release is really embarrassing.
