Howling with laughter here.
Reminds me of Tom Lehrer's "Be Prepared", perhaps early 60's:

Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well,
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell.

A Lehrer web site is:
http://wiw.org/~drz/tom.lehrer/

Lehrer was complaining about the boomer generation, long before your
daughter, or her satin-draped acquaintance, was born. Methinks you
could find complaints about deteriorating educational standards and
inarticulate youth in classical Greek and Roman authors.
