Education These Here Now Days

My friend D, who is 16 and in high school, had a grammatical question for her teachers the other day.

She wanted to know the difference between "who" and "whom". She asked multiple (more than two) English teachers, none of whom gave her an answer. None of them knew or remembered. My favorite answer was (paraphrased): "No one uses whom any more. It doesn't matter."

This is going to be best colony of the Chinese Empire ever!
