Good morning, Nashville. Local teachers are afraid that text lingo may be getting in the way of our kids learning the English language. With text speak working its way into conversation in real life (IRL), it stands to reason that it has also been showing up in kids’ papers and projects for school. English language expert and University School of Nashville teacher Robert McKay especially worries that all of this shorthand is hurting the art of language and the importance of spelling.
