Schools already use programs like "White Smoke" and http://www.whitesmoke.com/ and "Style Writer" http://www.stylewriter-usa.com/ to identify grammar errors and stylistic errors, and suggest corrections. These programs are able to identify active and passive voice, clarity and readability of writing, ambiguous words, gender specific words, cliches, and more. I'm not sure the use of such software is such a great idea. I guess it's OK as long as a teacher reviews the results. Then again, if the teacher doesn't do as good a job as the program does...

I am more bored than you could ever possibly be. Go back to work.
