Why spelling?

In an age of spell checkers and text messaging, why is spelling practice so important?

Spelling, reading, and writing are supported by the same visual and spoken representations of a word. Knowing the spelling of a word supports fluent reading and ease of writing. Poor spellers experience a loss of word power in writing. They choose words that are easier to spell, and their thoughts get lost while trying to spell a word.
