Yes, that is some pretty extreme wishful thinking.
Disagreed. What you say can be said about most languages.
The problem in the U.S. is mediocre education and permitted laziness of the student. I went to a private school, and I’m about 30 years old now. I have never had a problem spelling, and quite frankly I am shocked at the spelling troubles of a vast majority of the younger kids that I encounter.
I’m no grammar nazi, and I am not not excellent at grammar, but spelling is one of those things that is easy to master. Even basic, common words seem to be a problem nowaways. For instance, your vs. you’re - It seems that you’d have to be a complete blathering idiot to make such a mistake, yet this error is unbelievably common nowadays.
No public wish lists :(
