Teachers - can they spell advocacy?

back in the day when this blog was called "didactic" I would occasionally deviate from matters literary into matters literate.

Today on the radio I heard a reference that made me think I might laps back to my old ways for an indulgent post.

will write up fully when I find the relevant links, but it is no doubt connected to the link above, what I hard was that teachers are unable to "break down" words into their parts to help them, among other things, spell them correctly.

you can say what you like about the classics, but they would at least ground you in that!
