Again apologies for sending this to everybody. But at least now
everybody will know the sad state of Canadian high school education.
Thank you for this unfortunate information. I have to teach 1st year
Sanskrit this coming year, and I was contemplating giving the Maurer
text book a try. However, it seems to cost some $200 which is far
beyond our students' means. But Maurer explains simple things such as
what a noun and an adjective is, something our students don't seem to
familiar with. They don't learn any other language than English in
school, and English grammar is not taught. The school boards here
seem to think that teaching grammar is too old fashioned.
Best regards to yourself and Jody.
