Are today's students being taught by lobotomized weasels to write like lobotomized robots so they can be graded by computers? Crispin Sartwell seems to think so:
Obviously, if your no-child-left-behind funds depend on your test scores, you will teach your kids to write essays that move a computer to tears. But the idea that computers can grade essays in the first place is one that could only have occurred to people who have no idea how to write or how to read, people whose existence is redundant and hence indefensible: in short, the people who administer the education of our children.
