Yes, until they can give specific examples of having problems over specific "errors" they remain imaginary.

Hold on, have you actually forgotten how this tangent started?

People pull you up on your spelling all the time.

The US is known for having some of the most uneducated teachers at primary and secondary levels. <<

You will find that occurs mostly in the poorer inner city areas. They have a high number of teachers to recruit and most of the better educated teachers head towards the suburbs. Once in, the unions make sure it is almost impossible to fire them.

Some of the most "uneducated teachers" as compared to what. In my experience the Trump voters are the most uneducated and they tend not to come "from poorer inner city areas" they come from middle class White rural America. All one has to do is look at the voting patterns supporting Trump inspite of the evidence against his qualifications.

Tell me about it!

Some of them don't even know that a real education looks like. Hell, some of them can't even spell the name of my wife's country correctly, even after being given the answer.

I call it anti-intellectual knownothingism.

This is what a real education looks like:

I think Ramseylurker is confusing the verb "can´t" with the verb "doesn´t" there is aa big difference one deals with the ability to, the other with the will to. There is no cure for lack of ability, but for lack of will all it takes is motivation.  If these imaginary people don´t perhaps they see no reason to bother. considering that the message is more important then using a particularletter such as a o u considering in that in English the sound would be the same for that country..

There is no shame in ordinary ignorance, as that easily solved with education and knowledge. Willful ignorance, however, is a problem that is not so easily solved.

Please don't say that. 

We know that stupidity is incurable - but ignorance can surely be fixed!

Well, lets look at YOU as a prime example, shall we?

You said you was a HS teacher in California, and a lecturer/professor at Queens University, and you tell us tales of travelling the world doing educational lectures. Yet, you cant spell, or string two sentences together, even if it was necessary to save your life!
