Diploma Honors “Educaiton”

by Venomous Kate

It’s a pretty sad commentary about the state of our educational system when administrators make spelling errors on high school diplomas. Twice.

A Cleveland-area principal says he’s embarrassed his students got proof of their “educaiton” on their high school diplomas.

Westlake High School officials misspelled “education” on the diplomas distributed last weekend. It’s been the subject of mockery on local radio.

Principal Timothy Freeman says he sent back the diplomas once to correct another error. When the diplomas came back, no one bothered to check things they thought were right the first time.

Yeah, Cleveland rawks all right.

  1. Ooooooh, pet peeve! My husband is in charge of the media team at our church and there are inevitably typing or spelling errors that end up on-screen. It drives me nuts, but not as much as the errors on television captioning.

  3. The television ones drive me nuts, too. I just find it so hard to believe whatever program they use doesn’t have a spell-check built into it!

  4. Or here in Kansas!
