this is classic — the principal of a public high school has had to fall on his sword and take the blame for passing out 330 diplomas with the word “education” misspelled. while i am far from a perfect speller, spelling (and grammar) is a thing for me (although, every time i post something like this, someone comments that i’m the last person who should comment about this, particularly because of my horrible use of lower case, which really seems to get under the skin of some readers!).
The easy way out would have been to tell the graduates of Westlake High School that the misspelling on their diplomas was a final test.
A test. Yeah, that’s it.
Instead, Principal Timothy Freeman fell on his red pen, shouldering responsibility for the diplomas issued to 330 Westlake graduates at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland on Saturday that read board of “educaiton,” not “education.”
