A rambling letter from the principal of a Brooklyn middle school was so poorly written and full of grammatical errors that parents and teachers say he deserves a dunce cap.

Principal Andrew Buck of the Middle School for Art and Philosophy was defending his policy of not providing textbooks in the email sent last week.

Or at least he seemed to be.

Buck, who has worked for the Department of Education since 1997, has been principal since the school opened in 2007. He is not tenured, officials said.

He was voted the "least trustworthy" principal in Brooklyn by the teachers union in 2008.

That looks like a letter I would write.   TeddyR

IMO all schools should have an* hehe typo lol, extreme screening procedure in order to become a principal, no?

No... I guess not, probably got the job at very low starting salary.

"Students can't use a textbook to learn how to learn from a textbook.  Knowing how to learn from and use a textbook is a skill than can or must be modeled and taught by another..."

If people have to be taught how to learn from a textbook, who's going to teach them how to learn from the person teaching them how to learn from a textbook?

Kudos for having three redundancies in a single sentence though  TeddyR
