School fires employee… for correcting grammar!

January 18, 2017

How out-of-control has America’s coddling of our students become? In Maryland, if you’re a school employee and correct a young persons grammar, you’ll lose your job.

That’s what happened in Frederick Public school system after the school’s social media employee playfully mixed it up with a student on Twitter over the student’s poor spelling.

For correcting the student, Katie Nash says she was fired.

Nash told The Frederick News-Post that she was let go on Friday afternoon from her $44,000-a-year job. A Frederick County Public Schools spokesman confirmed that Nash had been let go, without providing details.

Nash ran the school district’s Twitter account. On Jan. 5, a student tweeted to the account, asking that schools be closed “tammarow.”

Nash responded from the district’s account, “But then how would you learn how to spell ‘tomorrow?'”

I don't have an iphone or whatnot, but surely there's auto-correct or something that lets the user know they have misspelled a word, yes?

yes unless you spell it so horribly that the auto correct fails.  That or the original poster was too lazy to press the corrected text....I would think its the latter.
