Students who struggle with their spelling lessons may have trouble finding positive reinforcement from some school signs we found spelled incorrectly. Check out these signs that spell trouble:
"SHCOOL X-NG" sign lacking "street smarts" – Since July of last year students at Marta Valle High School on New York City's Lower East Side haveÂ had toÂ view a painted street sign outside of their school that was spelled wrong.
"People older than us always tell us to make sure we spell stuff right and this sign is wrong right in front of us," said TanayshaÂ Ebron, a senior at the school.
The sign, spelled "SHCOOL X-NG" on Stanton Street was corrected Tuesday.
"PUBIC schools" sign removed – A billboard meant to tout South Bend, Indiana, schools was removed after it caused a big stir in 2010. The billboard encouragedÂ local residentsÂ to check out the "15 best things about our PUBIC schools." The sign was supposed to say "public" but the letter "l" was accidentally left out. Affiliate WSBT reported the company that created the billboard advertisement said the ad was proofread byÂ four people and the typo was missed by all of them.
Too cool for "SCOHOL" – AÂ "SCOHOL"Â zone signÂ in Lauderhill, Florida, attracted a lot of unwantedÂ attention last year near Banyan Elementary School. LauderhillÂ resident Keith MahlÂ jokingly told affiliate WSVNÂ theÂ crewÂ that made the mistake should be "sent back to third grade and given an 'F' for spelling." The company responsible for the error told WSVNÂ the letters "h" and "o" are on the same stencil and they accidentally painted the letters with the stencil upside down.
