Education official has typo-ridden blog


UPI News Service, 02/05/2009 

British Schools Minister Jim Knight said the spelling errors that litter his past blog posts were the result of his failure to proofread.

Knight, a member of Parliament for the Labor party, misspelled words including "received," "archaeological," "maintenance," "pensioners," "convinced," "achieving" and others, The Daily Mail reported Thursday.

"When I was at school, the teachers always told me to check my work," said Knight, who was educated at the prestigious Eltham College and the University of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam College. "While my spelling is generally pretty good, I need to focus more on checking."

"He will be disappointed with his efforts in class but I'm sure he'll make every effort to improve now teacher has noticed he's falling behind," Conservative education spokesman Rob Wilson jokingly said of Knight.
