Came across this interesting post by Alex Reid. He writes about recent news articles and statistics about complaints by businesses and professors on poor writing skills of employees and students. I love how the author turns these complaints on their head and suggests that maybe rather than complaining, we do something to help, even so, he points out that complaining will still happen. He writes,
Of course the other way of looking at this is to say that on the whole, college students manage to graduate, get jobs, and keep them (or at least not lose them because they are poor writers). People figure out what they need to figure out. We can undoubtedly help more students be more successful with a better-informed approach to this pedagogical task, but none of that is likely to change the views of professors and corporate officers about their students and employees.
