Is it just me?

Is it just me, or should 10 year olds be able to spell words like "crazy," "monkey," and "games?"

They should at least know what a Y is right?

Phonics has been out of fashion for years, thus no one can freaking spell anymore. I frequently have to spell basic search terms for my 8th graders. It's sad. And on top of it, they have grown up with the expectation that the computer will correct their spelling anyway. Bleh.
