Obama's Secretary of Education Arne Duncan Used Incorrect Grammar to Criticize Governor Perry

The following is part of a letter I received from Donna Garner. Donna calls out Arne Duncan for using incorrect Grammar while Duncan criticized Governor Perry.Thanks for the info Donna! - David Bellow


U. S. Sectretary of Education Arne Duncan decided to take a cheap shot at Texas Gov. Rick Perry by saying, “Far too few of their [Texas] high school graduates are actually prepared to go on to college…I feel very, very badly for the children there.”

First of all, Arne Duncan, the highest-level education official in our land, used incorrect grammar to criticize Gov. Perry and our Texas education standards.  The word “badly” is an adverb to be used with an action verb; “bad” is a predicate adjective to be used after the intransitive linking verb “feel.”  Duncan should have said, “I feel very, very bad for the children there.”
