WESTLAKE, Ohio (June 6) - A Cleveland-area principal says he's embarrassed his students got proof of their "educaiton" on their high school diplomas.

Westlake High School officials misspelled "education" on the diplomas distributed last weekend. It's been the subject of mockery on local radio.

Principal Timothy Freeman says he sent back the diplomas once to correct another error. When the diplomas came back, no one bothered to check things they thought were right the first time.

The publisher has reprinted the diplomas a second time and sent them to the 330 graduates.


I don't know whose face should be redder, the school for not catching the mistake or the publisher who sent it out in the first place. TWICE, since they'd already had to redo the diplomas once because of a different error.
