A spelling error on the sign for a middle school in Brownsville has gone viral.
Brownsville ISD officials confirm that the photo taken outside Cummings Middle School is authentic.
An employee at the school spelled "Tanksgiven Holiday" instead of "Thanksgiving Holiday" and put "Estudents" instead of "Students" on a marquee sign Thursday.
School district officials told Action 4 News that the sign was quickly corrected but not before someone had snapped a picture.
The picture has generated an on-line debate about the state of education in the Rio Grande Valley with comments ranging from humorous to very serious.
