After a typo-ridden sign outside a public school became a thing on social media, the principal was reassigned to a different school—as a vice principal, reports CBS Local. The offending sign mentioned "Dicember" and a "progress reepor" at Public School 20 in Paterson, NJ. It was up for about a week, with photos of it circulating online. "How can we expect our children to learn how to spell when the administration can't?" wrote school board member Corey Teague. And though principal Antoinette Young didn't put up the sign herself, she's no longer in charge of the school, reports (This educator lost her job over a bizarre outing that made use of her car trunk.)
