Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
Spelling is one of the principal components of any elementary school program of language arts or English. Educationally, as well as socially, poor spelling is generally considered a sign of illiteracy. Whether this is justified or not, people do raise conclusions about a person's education and intelligence on the evidence of his/her spelling abilities. Therefore, strong spelling programs continue to be desired as an integral part of an elementary school curriculum.
