No, but it seems unfair to punish a kid with poor grades in ALL subjects for the crime of being poor in ONE.
Sorry, but that's life. If schools are supposed to prepare students for the real world, they'd better do it properly. If I ever came across a resume with bad spelling or poor grammar, it would greatly lower my opinion of the resume sender and make it much less likely that I'd interview him or her.
Besides, the grades subtracted for bad English were fairly low. I don't advocate failing someone in physics for substandard English, but a couple of percent off is quite appropriate.
