Dear Mr. Campbell,

The correct grammar is “one in five children in grade four doesn’t read at a grade 4 level”

NOT

“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.

Or both.

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.
