The White House posted a picture of Betsy DeVos at that Easter Egg thing on Snapchat and misspelled her job title.
A couple of months ago, the Department of Education (sp?) posted a tweet about the great African American historian and American hero, W.E.B. du Bois and misspelled his name.
Spelling correctly seems to be a problem. And not a new one. When I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago, they spelled my degree incorrectly.
I received the diploma in the mail a few months after I finished the program and noticed the error. I made a copy of it, circled Bachelor of Arts in Art Educaton with a red marker, and sent the copy back to the Chancellor.
One of the things you learn to do in any quality educaton program is how to use a red marker to humiliate someone.
The Chancellor wrote me back.
He demanded I return the diploma so they could send me a corrected one.
No friggin’ way!
That kind of mistake on a stamp makes it more valuable.
Who knows what this diploma is worth today in auction?
