OXFORD, England, March 8 (UPI) -- Residents of a British town said they are rolling their eyes after workers misspelled the word "school" on the road outside an elementary school.
Parents dropping their children off at Wolvercote Primary School in Oxford, England, Thursday said they noticed the crews who replaced the tarmac Wednesday after performing cable work under the road had written "schoul" on the road instead of "school," The Sun reported Thursday.
"How embarrassing," said Annalie Cox, who has an 11-year-old and a 6-year-old at Wolvercote. "I hope that by the time my children leave this school they will be able to spell such basic words."
An Oxfordshire County Council spokesman said contractors are believed to be behind the error.
