In the passage “In praise of the F word” by Mary Sherry she talks about how she teaches high school graduates that have been “cheated” by the education system. Students were just passed along to the next grade whether they understood the material or not. I know many people who have graduated from high school and still have trouble spelling some words and simpler grammar. Mrs. Stifter made a big change in some students lives, instead of just passing along students that didn’t cause much trouble and didn’t pay attention, she flunked them. This made students pay attention and made English their man subject. The students in her class more than likely did not have to attend Mary’s classes for high school graduates. Stifter wanted students to know exactly what they were doing and not just pass our classes were small and the teachers were able to help whenever needed. They also wanted the best for their students.
