Scariest Paragraph of the Day

"What you have is a generation of teachers from the early to mid-'70s who don't know grammar, who never learned it," said Benjamin, an author of the national council's publication. "We have armies of teachers, elementary teachers and English teachers, who don't have the language to talk about language. It's kind of their dirty little secret."

Last paragraph of "Clauses and Commas Make a Comeback". Of course, most people can get along fine without grammar instruction, but real education should provide more than the basics.
