Spelling taught here? Sign outside NYC school misspells it as ‘Shcool’

A glaring misspelling on a street sign outside a Manhattan high school has some laughing that the mistake’s gone unreported for months and stauncher critics condemning what they perceive to be a symbol of the “dumbing down” of American society.

The painted pavement on Stanton Street outside Marta Valle High School reads “SHCOOL X-NG.”

The Department of Transportation claims the mistake was made by a utility provider, not the city, according to The New York Post. The agency said it would reach out to the contractor to have the error fixed.

But that hasn’t quelled the outcry.
