There are two places you absolutely do not want to misspell words -- tattoos and signs. The latter is especially discouraged when said sign is outside of a place of education, and the misspelled word is "school." Although, it might be encouraging to students who are struggling with spelling. You don't have be able to spell "school" to get a job, after all.

According to the New York Post, a school crossing was misspelled after some electrical construction was done underneath and the asphalt had to be refilled -- in July, 2010. That's right, it stayed in place for more than a year and a half. Con Edison of New York claims a contractor did it, but little else is known.

    Blame the Republicans for cutting the Schools budgets. Those are going to be working for the middle class & the rich.

    dont

    Or the city lost it's unions & everyone makes minimum wage $6 after taxes.
    You get what you pay for!

    Or the city got rid of the public schools & no one in the town makes enough money to go to private!

    It's actually both, but what can you expect from union workers.

    Mainly because it is a warning to any parent considering sending their kids to public, well, shcool, I guess.

    Narrative it comes as surprise that anyone educated in America in the past 30 years even knew it was spelled wrong -

    Not to worry folks, we're rectifying the education gap by mandating alternative lifestyle and cultural tolerance classes. A step bound to make our kids smarter.

    define alternate lifestyles?

    pretty sure you know that I mean gay/pro-homosexual tolerance classes. (Which I am not being critical of the lifestyle, just the school for adding when our students can't read and write.)

    Mistakes happen, although it must be embarrassing for the person who painted it.

    Most of those are photoshops or web-generated signs.

    And the person who did the Wicked Wok sign did it wrong. The last word should be “PREASE.” ;-)

    If you are going to put a sign for school crossing, I highly recommend you go to the school and learn how to spell the word before you write it in giant letters. Otherwise you are just proving that there is a problem with the American education system.
