Pubic education

An embarrassing spelling mistake that was meant for "public education" on an athletic sponsorship sign put up by the Red Lion Area School District in Pennsylvania in September 2012. The typo was first noted by Deadspin and originally posted to Twitter by Ryan Petzar. According to Don Dimoff, marketing director at the school district, the typo was an honest mistake and it didn't reflect on the quality of the school's sponsors or programs.
