Misspelled sign may have cost high school principal her job

Mistakes on message above entryway were left uncorrected for more than a week

The sign above the entryway to Public School 20 in Paterson, N.J. (Corey Teague/Facebook)

A principal has been reassigned after a misspelled sign was displayed for more than a week outside a New Jersey public high school.

The message on the sign above the entryway to Paterson’s Public School Number 20 included three mistakes: December was spelled "Dicember," report as "reepor" and a "1" was placed backwards.

The errors drew the ire of school Paterson Board of Education member Corey Teague, who saw a photo of the misspelled sign on Facebook.
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment

“At first I didn’t believe it," Teague told CBS New York. "I thought it was Photoshopped or something."

When Teague found out it was real, he shared the photo on Facebook.

"How can we expect our children to learn how to spell when the administration can't?" Teague wrote. "We must be held to a higher standard.”
