I was taking a look at my friends 14year old sons school essay, as he had asked me to help him (spelling and grammar) re-write it, as his d grade was not good enough. I was really shocked to see that the English teacher had corrected wiped (whipped) with wipped! I am sure this is the right spelling, and that its spelt with a 'h'. Whipped as in flog.
The teacher may have been under a lot of pressure,but surely this effort of correction is NOT a good example. I am sure there are some really brilliant English teachers out there, who would also find this 'mistake' not good enough...They are teaching our children for heavens sake! Forgive me if you think i am being a tadge fussy.
Has any one else had similar experiences? By the way he goes to a 'doing well' comp.
