Abuse of Colons by Brooks

Mr. Brooks:

But the crucial issues are: What do you do with teachers and administrators who are failing? Don’t plunk a colon down in a sentence between the linking verb and predicate nominative. Just drop this colon and keep the capital on “what” because you begin a question in the middle of a sentence. The best rule of thumb is to have a whole sentence before a colon. ldd
