Reforming English Language Arts: Let's Trash the Tradition.
Schuster, Edgar H.
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n7 p518-24 Mar 1999
Teachers should stop teaching traditional school-room grammar entirely. There is no reason to wound youngsters with something they will never learn and never need. Instead, teachers should treat usage and mechanics in gentle, encouraging, nontechnical, and innovative ways. A communication correctly understood by a native speaker is grammatical.
