Ain't even worry, y'all, Florida skools gonna learn your kids some reading and righting reel good.

Yes, in just the latest unfortunate example of a school not following its own lessons, a high school in Tampa Bay recently promoted literacy with a misspelled sign.

You see, Leap Day is coming up, and a teacher at Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg decided to devote the extra day to literacy. She even instructed a janitor to promote the event on the school's sign.

Unfortunately it wound up misspelled. No, folks, no one can "laep" to anything.

The school managed to fix the sign before school started on Monday, but not before it started making the rounds on Facebook.
