It is difficult to comprehend how young children will be 'inhibited' in their expression by having to speak standard English. The pronunciation uttered by many so- called teachers and an alarming number of television presenters falls well below a properly educated standard.
I am left wondering whether some elements of the teaching profession are opposed to the use of good language because they have so significantly failed their responsibilities in the past.
