The Washington Post reports: In classrooms and hallways and on the playground, young people are
using inappropriate language more frequently than ever, teachers and principals say. Not only is it
coarsening the school climate and social discourse, they say, it is evidence of a decline in
language skills. Popular culture has made ugly language acceptable and hip, and many teachers say
they only expect things to get uglier.
