"We are not letting a student's keyboarding skills get in the way of being able to judge their writing ability," said state Superintendent Susan Castillo.

The state Superintendent thinks that all spelling errors are the result of hitting the wrong key on the keyboard. Sounds pretty ridiculous to me.

Obviously, you don't "have to be good at spelling to be a good writer." But that's not the question at hand.

Do you have to be good at spelling to be a good writer? Not necessarily, at least not in Oregon public schools?

I think spelling, grammar ,and structure are as important as content. IMHO, this is just another way to push kids through the public school system.
