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!

I halve a spelling chequer.
It came with my pea sea.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot sea.

Eye ran this poem threw it,
Your sure reel glad two no.
It very polished in its weigh.
My chequer tolled me sew.

A chequer is a bless sing,
It freezes yew lodes of thyme.
It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
And aides me when I rime.

Each frays come posed up on my screen
Eye trussed too bee a joule.
The chequer pours over every word
And will cheque a spelling rule.

Bee fore a veiling chequer's Hour
Spelling mite decline,
And if we're lacks oar have a lapse,
We wood bee maid too wine.

Butt now bee cause my spelling
Is checked with such grate flair,
Their are no fault's with in my cite,
Of nun eye am a ware.

Now spelling does knot phase me,
It does knot bring a tier.
My pay purrs awl due glad den
With wrapped word's fare as hear.

To rite with care is quiet a feet
Of witch won should be proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaw's are knot aloud.

Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays,
Such soft wear four pea seas,
And why eye brake in two averse
Buy righting too pleas.
