April 19, 2019 Updated: April 19, 2019

A road crew in Florida apparently misspelled the word “school” near a crosswalk.

Instead, it’s spelled “scohol,” according to photos and videos posted on social media.

The city of Doral, Florida, tweeted that a private contractor has corrected the word.

“This SCHOOL zone striping was handled by the developer’s contractor. They have been notified and are working expeditiously to correct. Thank you to all who brought this very important matter to our attention,” the city wrote on April 18.

Wrote one person in the comments section, “Checklist for this job: License? Check. Contract? Check. Spelling test for the one word they need to spell?”

You had ONE JOB! 👀🤦‍♀️

“It’s not a good thing when you misspell school,” bystander Maxwell Easter said, KFVS reported. “It’s not a good look. At all.”

“My buddy pulled it up on Twitter and saw that someone had misspelled school and we had to come see it for ourselves,” Easter added.

Old Chalkboards Found Inside School

Workers renovating a high school in Oklahoma City were stunned to find chalkboards from the early 1900s behind the walls.

The series of chalkboards, that appear to have been used in 1917, were discovered in three classrooms at Emerson High School.

They feature lessons on math, reading, music, and handwriting. According to reports, there was a picture of a turkey as the markings were made right after Thanksgiving in 1917.

There are also rules for keeping clean, a drawing of a little girl blowing bubbles, and a history lesson about the Pilgrims.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God,’ and then I got goosebumps and then I had tears in my eyes,” Principal Sherry Kishore told KFOR.

Written on one of the boards is a pledge that goes: “I give my head, my heart, and my life to my God, and one nation, indivisible, with justice for all.”

Math teacher Sherry Read told NPR she believes that the chalkboard drawings and lessons were left for a reason.

“You would have cleaned off your board so you could be ready the next day to come back and teach,” Read said. “So I think they left them on there on purpose to send a message to us, to say, ‘This is what was going on in our time.'”

“The time that teachers must have spent preparing for their lessons is amazing to me,” Kishore said after seeing all the details on the boards.

Her 85-year-old mother, a retired schoolteacher, also shed tears after seeing the boards.

“She just stood there and cried,” Kishore told The Oklahoman.

Kishore said the markings were “exactly like her classroom was when she was going to school.”
