Writing - Harder than they think

 A webinar pitch sent to university writing instructors should be written well. That should be obvious.

An email hobbled by poor grammar and syntax gains nothing - except a quick Delete.

Here is today’s example:

“Students being 'unprepared' for college experience, is a fact that colleges and universities are still continuing to lament on, and it is quite unlikely that the lamentation is to cease in the near future, due to the level of unpreparedness that the future cohorts of entering college students have. Consequently, higher education must itself become better prepared to handle the influx of underprepared students and students "at risk" for attrition.”

Poorly written notes from supposed educational authorities is a fact that I continue to lament on. Sadly, it seems quite unlikely that the lamentation is to cease in the near future…
