Oh dear. Poor Principal Freeman.

Typo on diplomas embarrasses Ohio principal

WESTLAKE, Ohio (AP) — 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.

The publisher has reprinted the diplomas a second time and sent them to the 330 graduates.

Hat tip: Associated Press.

  2. Yeah, it’s definitely alternative, but alternative to what? Schools that teach spelling?
