CBS Journo-LOSTS Demonstrate Educational failure.

Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read « CBS New York.

The article above  informs us that 80 percent of NYC High School Students need remedial instruction in the basics before going on to college.  In other words,  they have to pay for additional education because they’re not being adequately prepared by the government funded education.

Three hours before Pharmer encountered the article, another reader, “SS”,  had commented on a typo in the word ‘group’, (grouip), the mispelling of the word ‘nervous’, (nervus),  and the use of “emersion” rather than immersion.   Two of the errors were corrected, but the word “nervus” still remained at the time of this reading.

Were this a blogger, such as yours truly,  who posts news on the fly, without the benefit of an editor, one might expect some errors.  Journalists write for a living, and have the “benefit” of editors, who are supposed to review articles before publication.

Fortunately, CBS has a third layer of help from those who append comments to the posts.   Thanks “SS” for your voluntary service to news readers.
