Proof of "Educaiton" on Diploma Embarrasses Ohio High School

 

Officials at Westlake High School in Westlake, Ohio, were left embarrassed after students read they had received proof of their "educaiton" on their High School diplomas. The diplomas had already been misprinted.

High School Principal Timothy Freeman returned the misprinted diplomas to the publisher for correction, and admitted that no one bothered to check for any new errors, only making sure that the original misprint was corrected.

The Publisher responsible has reprinted the diplomas once more and sent them out to the 350 high school graduates.

  Ha!  
 
My wife graduated from here! Their school system really isn't that bad, but they're quite the "snobby" school.

  Wow..  
 
A new low for education in America. "We're not dumb, we're lazy and dumb!"

Why am I not surprised...

  Heh,  
 
No one checks anything anymore, apparently. Verification is never cost effective. ;)(as long as it is done right the first time)

  I know what it is...  
 
It's all the cuts in the Ohio's education system. They had to release the local spelling teacher and there wssn't a dictionary near by and they had to go with a gut feeling. Unfortunately it was a wrong gut feeling that is going to make the Ohio education system the brunt of jokes on Leno.

Seriously though, is it the fault of the school systems or the publisher ? It's a simple error too, all that happen was whoever typed the word education switched the "i" and the "t" .... they should of caught that.

Your comment was uncalled for!

Try not to generalize an entire country based on a misprinted high school article it is asinine.

  I work for a school district in central Ohio.  
 
While it's true that what the state has done to us in funding is absolutely unconscionable you shouldn't judge a school system by a typo made by a secretary who probably makes $20k per year.

Totally off topic but our school district has been gutted to the tune of over $2,000,000 per year. That's a lot for a district with less than 6,000 kids.

this certainly shouldn't reflect on Westlake students' abilities...they are quite a smart school (most of my cousins went there). And they say they got a great education there.

"@Allanthar

no one was saying all americans are dumb, but the the education system in the US and even canada is atrocious... its actually be getting continually WORSE in the last couple decades.

so what they were the first to have and aircraft... were they the first the space?, the first democracy? firsts come and ago all the time, though admitly many american firsts were significant but not all firsts are a good thing: they were also the first to use a nuclear bomb, they were also the first to claim the use of nuclear weapon for "defense".
