Dear Mr. Campbell,
The correct grammar is “one in five children in grade four doesn’t read at a grade 4 level”
“one in five children in grade four don’t read at a grade 4 level.”
Maybe your speech writer was one of those children.
Or maybe you were.
Maybe you were trying to illustrate a point?
Or maybe you wanted BC to have its very own George Dubya?
The cost of that speech was more than I paid for my house.
I’d rather you spent that money on a few extra teachers. Maybe ones who can teach grammar at a fourth grade level.
