“Muslim boy, 10, probed for ‘terrorist house’ spelling error” in BBC News.
You might think it’s dull to learn correct spelling — and to proofread to spot and correct spelling errors — but good spelling is important as this boy found out.
The boy’s teachers did not realize the boy had made a spelling mistake when he wrote that he lives in a “terrorist” house. The teachers reported the boy to the police in accordance with the 2015 Counter-Terrorism and Security Act.
The police questioned the boy and examined his laptop at the family’s “terraced” house [“row” house in the USA].
His family has demanded the school and police apologize.
