A Long Island school district published its summer reading list riddled with typos. The Hempstead Union Free School District suggested that students read "The Great Gypsy" among other remixed classics. Written for all grade levels in the district, the list includes 30 errors according to one count.
Although Figueras described the incident as an isolated event, the errors are part of bigger problems, according to Newsday:
"Hempstead consistently has been one of Long Island's worst-performing school systems. Its 2011-12 graduation rate of 38 percent was the lowest of the Island's 124 public school districts."
- What action is appropriate for the employee who made the errors? Who else, if anyone, should be held responsible, and how?
- Read the entire document. How many errors do you find?
