Why English teachers are important – John Cooper Clarke: Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes)
English teachers are valuable because language is the stuff we all deal in every waking hour. Unlike logarithms. To use language in a powerful or persuasive way is in everyone’s interest every minute of your life. I still think the only reason to go to school is to learn how to read. After that you can teach yourself most stuff.
