The picture says it all. This article pretty much sums up the question of whether literacy is still relevant and important in the education system today.

Well here's something to make your old English teacher gasp in horror: A road contractor hired to paint the word "school" on a freshly paved stretch of highway near Southern Guilford High School in North Carolina rendering the traffic area in question a "shcool" lane.
But fear not for the surely confused area youth! The contractor, an area company named Traffic Markings, has already corrected the error.
This isn't the first such mishap on record. Last year, for instance, a Miami area road crew offered the variant spelling of "scohol," while in 2007, a Kalamazoo team managed to do the same "h" and "c" reversal.
Chalk it all up to a bad day's wrok.
