The Debate So Far

Sonny2001Sonny2001 (PRO)
It is a harrowing thought that children in schools may be using internet slang in their work a time school/college. Internet slang is merely a way in which words/phrases can be compacted into shorter, more time-saving terms, such as”LOL” or “Wbu”. Children are fully capable of writing without abbreviating the words or phrases they use and therefore it should not even be considered that they should be able to use shortcuts in schoolwork.
