    [h=1]New York school district issues reading list riddled with errors, including 'Great Gypsy'[/h] Published July 10, 2013Associated Press




    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – A Long Island school district has released a summer reading list riddled with spelling errors.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" is misspelled as "The Great Gypsy." And author Emily Bronte is listed as Emily Bonte.
    According to Newsday and News 12 Long Island, those are just a few of the more than 30 errors on the list provided by the Hempstead Public Schools.
    In a statement, a member of the New York State Department of Education's Board of Regents said the mistakes indicated that a stable administration was essential for children to get a good education. The statement said, "Hempstead has not had a stable administration for a long time and the kids are suffering."
    Hempstead Superintendent Susan Johnson didn't immediately return a call for comment.

    :jj:

    i saw it on the news this morning. they should all be beaten and then fired for such incompetence.

    i'm sure if we throw billions more at the education system, these things wouldn't happen.

    oh wait, it's the teachers and admin. :nocheer:

    Ahem. They're subhumans and it's not realistic to expect them to be educated (edumacated) to de white man's standards.

    Send them. All. The fuck. Back to. Fucking. Africa. <--- solution to the problem.
