comment Does Judaism encourage secular learning?
@ray Indeed the trials have changed. Nowadays we unfortunately have people claiming to be Gedolim who are actually in the category described in the quotation as desecrating God's name. All the more so nowadays must we emphasize proper education so that these pseudo-Gedolim don't manage to corrupt Jewish tradition.

comment Which Shmita spelling is the most correct?
@DanF There are Halachot (or at least very strong Minhagim) of transliterating English into Hebrew for writing in Gittin. Presumably the same would apply if you tried to write a Get in English. In any event, the fact that there are no Halachot is an answer, not a problem with the question. If he asks "Is there a halachically preferred X?" just answer "No." Why won't you let him ask just because you know the answer?
