spelling

Pretty funny that this slipped through the cracks:

Two parents in Queens were outraged after their five-year-old daughter was asked to complete a spelling worksheet that featured the words “gun” and “rob,” but officials at the Department of Education said Wednesday that the teacher, who brought the offending worksheet from a previous school, has apologized.

“You’re teaching them that guns are okay because you’re putting it in their homework, you’re teaching them that robbing is okay because you’re putting it in their homework,” said Takiema Reynolds, the girl’s mother.

I suppose it’s a bit more sensitive of an issue in a city like New York, in a neighborhood such as Queens.  Lets not get carried away though, guns ARE OK.  Robbing isn’t OK, but that’s a robber in the picture.  Police have guns to catch robbers.  Are police not OK?

Genuine mistake on behalf of the teacher?  Or an epic troll gone sour?  I guess we will never know.

This is an awesome idea.

Whoever engraved that really needs to proof read though, because “California” and “Contains” are spelled incorrectly.

Thanks to Kevin for the picture.
