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 have had to 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 Tanaysha 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 encouraged local residents 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 by four people and the typo was missed by all of them.
Too cool for "SCOHOL" – A "SCOHOL" zone sign in Lauderhill, Florida, attracted a lot of unwanted attention last year near Banyan Elementary School. Lauderhill resident Keith Mahl jokingly told affiliate WSVN the crew that made the mistake should be "sent back to third grade and given an 'F' for spelling." The company responsible for the error told WSVN the letters "h" and "o" are on the same stencil and they accidentally painted the letters with the stencil upside down.

Actually I favor a Lambrusco. Bold but not too sweet on the palate.
