Homework Help: grammar

Posted by Leslie on Monday, December 6, 2010 at 11:22pm.

My teacher corrected a sentence, but wants me to explain why she is correct. I wrote: "Franklin acknowledges how difficult achieving perfection is, and how many have failed at it just like him." She corrected it to read: "Franklin acknowledges how difficult achieving perfection is, and how many have failed at it just like he has." Why is her version correct?
