Typical, ignore the problem and impose a “solution.” If many adults can’t spell properly, it means the educational system has failed, not that “it’s too hard.”
This is the same sort of BS pandering to immigrants Germany and Austria did some years back when they rewrote the grammatical rules governing the use of the German language, except that here in America many citizens are dumber than fresh off the boat immigrants.
But of course we can’t just reform the educational system. If Congress did that people might eventually be smart enough to realize that they’ve been conned and that DC isn’t home to our government anymore, that it’s now become “our” government. The elites will do anything to stay in power.
