One student would have been a senior this year, but committed suicide last January. Classmates have signed a petition to get a memorial page published in the yearbook but mental health experts consulted by the school recommended against a memory page.
Another student is a new mother and wanted to take her senior photo for the yearbook with her child. The school nixed the idea and stated that all senior photos published in the yearbook are taken alone.
Do you agree or disagree with the schools decision to forgo a memorial page and a mother/daughter senior photo in the annual yearbook?
Some say that schools now undervalue grammar, leading to qualified graduates without strong grammar skills. Others point out that there are many jobs that don't require the use of good grammar. Those who believe bad grammar is a deal breaker say that it's more than a set of rules but a sign that a job applicant has the ability to convey ideas and thoughts clearly.
Are employers missing out on qualified candidates if they toss a cover letter or resume with poor grammar?
