bellMaybe it’s a curse that afflicts school superintendents and candidates for school superintendent. After current State School Superintendent couldn’t figure out how to spell the name of the office he decided to run for, now we have one of the newest candidates to replace him having a spelling problem.

After officially announcing his run for state school superintendent earlier this week, Ashley Bell’s website is up and running, and there’s a spelling error in the logo.

We hope he has not yet ordered yard signs, push cards, bumper stickers, etc. with the errant spelling.

Of course, it’s possible the new spelling will catch on.

Same firm behind this Ashley Bell typo was behind this one too: http://www.politico.com/story/2014/02/dan-patrick-tweet-texas-gay-marriage-104032.html

Disclosure: I (unfortunately) worked for them for all of 6 weeks.

This is what happens when you hire people out of state who really don’t care about your race at all.

The candidate is responsible for the error. While certainly “his people” should have caught it, there is no way that Bell did not look at the logo 100 times before he signed off on it. A mess on all fronts–you aren’t ready and you have hired people who aren’t ready. As we say in the south, bless his heart.

The deficiency in the academic abilities of Georgia’s populace obviously doesn’t end with our kids. Sheeesh!!

Superintendent is the Obamacore spelling.
