Writing Skills are Important

I’m concerned about the loss of writing skills in America and in the Greater Gardner MA area, particularly among young people. I attribute much of the problem to the 21st century phenomenon known as texting with the use of frequent abbreviations. If you’re a parent, I encourage you to support your student’s educators by encouraging your kids to write. The sometimes hated essay is the best antidote to the loss of writing skills. Like anything, we need to use it or lose it. I am a big supporter of writing and I absolutely love English teachers.
