SD of L fails to teach basic typing skill

In this age of computers, it has been observed that most McCaskey High School students do not know how to properly type. This includes even those in advanced academic tracts.

Computer skills are as fundamental as math and English for young people to move on to college or gainful employment.

In times past and in other districts, typing is an important part of the middle school curriculum. Students are required to master conventional typing skills.

A source in confidence has indicated to NewsLanc that District officials are aware of the serious problem and will seek to address it in future curriculum.
