School Districtís Reading List Has More Than 30 Spelling Errors

07.10.13 11:47 AM

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., (UPI) –* New York state officials criticized a school board whose summer reading list misspells titles including “The Great Gatsby” and names including George Orwell.

The Hempstead Public Schools summer reading list has more than 30 spelling errors, including misspelling “The Great Gatsby” as “The Great Gypsy” and misspelling the names of authors including George Orwell, Emily Bronte, David McCullough and Frederick Douglass, Newsday, Melville, N.Y., reported Wednesday.

Hempstead Superintendent Susan Johnson did not immediately return calls for comment, Newsday said.

Roger Tilles, a member of the New York State Department of Education’s Board of Regents, blamed the district’s leadership for the spelling errors.

“It indicates again that a stable administration is absolutely essential for kids to get the kind of education they need,” he said. “Hempstead has not had a stable administration for a long time and the kids are suffering.”
