NYC Teaching Fellows not fit to teach

UPDATE: i was wrong, i admit it. i’m sorry NYC Teaching Fellows. please forgive my brash proclomations. https://kenny.wordpress.com/2006/03/21/update-nyc-teaching-fellows-are-fit-to-teach/

original post:
that’s a gross generalization, and i’m sure many of the NYC Teaching Fellows are fine teachers. but it’s a sad state of affairs when the advertising used to attract people’s attention towards becoming teachers in the NYC education system has piss poor grammar itself.


A New York City Teaching Fellow. An NYC Teaching Fellow.

this is the level of education that we’re trying to attract into the system to teach our kids? is it any wonder then that we continue to fall behind?…

    Well, a New York native would actually probably read the “NYC” in that ad as “New York City,” not just the letters. The sentence “Become a New York City Teaching Fellow” works gramatically.

    I don’t look at that and see “become a Enn-Why-Cee Teaching Fellow.”

    I don’t understand. “A” before consonants and “an” before vowels.
