Is this the only state this happens in? There have been embarrasing spelling signs in school zones in different part of the state for the last year one local one was spelled sochol crossing.
I think this should be an embarrassement to people who live in the state.

Patricia Schley, who teaches at Lakewood High School in St Petersburg, Florida, is hosting a training event for parents to help their children become better readers tomorrow evening - the extra day of the leap year.

Unfortunately, the giant advertising hoarding in the school's car park read: 'LAEPING TO LITERACY NIGHT'

Let's hope they get embarrased to start doing spelling tests.

Cant think here in the uk but i remember once when i wrote off a car i had, my freind sent me a pic of a sign from the entrance to a town called lew that read "Lew Please Drive Carefully"

Luckily for our freindships sake, I saw the funny side.

I don't know but the UK and the US is surprising me for every day, I can't understand how children especially at such an age can be so iliteral and uneducated. Where do these get jobs? I thought that even educated people in the US and UK had a hard time finding jobs meaning that these uneducated people would turn into work-slavery in order to get a job. It's a tragedy that the parents can go so far as leaving their own children so uneducated.
But this is only one view of the side, there are of course well educated people also.
The problem is that the amount of iliterate people in Europe & America is on the increase while in Asia and Africa it's decreasing. If the economy and the people would stay as they are now, sooner or later they will be used in China just like Chinese workers are used in China.
I myself am going to stick with farming if I get older, that is if I can even afford a piece of land, God willing, I will buy a piece of land.

In a situation such as this, if they play it right, they may be able to get away with claiming 'sarcasm'.

It is often difficult to understand people who just make up words as they go.
What does 'iliteral' mean?

There used to be a sign going into one of the small towns here, in front of the cemetary. It said "landfill"


I didn't get a picture of it at the time, and now they've moved the sign to where it should be, pointing to the real landfill, which is behind the cemetary.

illiteral:

Literally being illiterate, not knowing to read or write.
Don't say I'm illiteral, 'cause I can spell weed AND white.

spelled with another "L"

To be fair, it is a good sentence

It fits, children are becoming more illiteral ......

Do you realize that you're actually able to type that out with an accent


I just can't figure out which accent


I think it leans towards Swiss
