There is an organisation called Simplify Spelling Society who want to alter the way our children are taught to spell..i.e.
lern instead of learn..
I remember the I.T.A system
( initial teaching alphabet) which was foisted on schools thirty years or sos ago..
There was about 40 odd characters and phonetic symbols. The idea was it gave children confidence in learning to read..until of course they had to spell words like book or hoop!
All these dozey ideas about altering a perfectly good system ..lets hope no forward thinking educationist thinks this is a good idea ...again!
