California High School Diploma Mistake Proves Our Public Schools DESPERATELY Need Help

So stunningly dumb. In California, a high school actually handed out diplomas with the word ‘school’ spelled wrong on them. Of course, the school blamed the company who printed the diplomas. But tell me this, why didn’t anyone catch it before the ceremony? Didn’t anyone check the order? It should have been caught by the printer… but it should have also been caught by the school. Words come to mind like sloppy, unprofessional, lazy, clueless and uncaring.


From The Daily Caller:

Officials at a high school amid the endless sprawl of Southern California actually managed to give out diplomas to this year’s crops of graduating seniors with the word “school” misspelled on the covers.

On Thursday evening, about 550 newly-minted graduates of Ontario High School in Ontario, Calif. received diplomas with fancy, leather-like covers proudly bearing the words “Ontario High Shcool” — with the letters ‘c’ and ‘h’ switched around.

School officials blamed the company that printed the diplomas for the embarrassing glitch, reports NBC Los Angeles.

“The principal has informed all Ontario graduates that the company has been contacted and will mail a corrected diploma cover to each graduate along with an apology letter,” school district superintendent Mathew Holton said in a statement obtained by the station. This happens at other schools as well, but again, you have to look at who is in charge and who didn’t follow up. Graduation to these kids is an epic event and it is beyond embarrassing to misspell or misrepresent something on a diploma.
