No slang for Sheffield school

| September 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

Students at Springs Academy in Sheffield in the UK have been banned from using slang at school. According to a new policy, ‘lazy’ language use is the fault of text messaging and Twitter. The school believes that using more formal parlance will give the academy’s 1 100 students a better chance of impressing future employers. The school has not made public how it will monitor children’s discourse, or what punishments it will mete out. As well as ruling out relaxed greetings like ‘see ya’, the school also requires that its most senior students dress in suits rather than school uniform.
