Diplomas With Typos Replaced

“The principal of a Massachusetts high school said she has received corrected diplomas after the original documents misspelled the words ‘for’ and ‘and.’

Principal Kathleen McSweeney of Plymouth North High School said Minnesota company Jostens, which printed the diplomas, created the replacement diplomas at its own expense after the errors were discovered, Wicked Local Plymouth reported Tuesday.


The person who wrote the text for the diploma should take remedial English. I can understand misspelling the word “misspell”, but there’s no excuse for spelling “for” and “and” incorrectly. The school insists that the mistake was made by the printing company, and not any school officials.

I wouldn’t mind having a high school diploma with typos; I would hang it on my wall. If a friend or family member criticized my spelling or grammar, I would point to it and exclaim, “Give me a break, look at the kind of school I graduated from.”
