See kids - this is why school is so important...

A web coordinator at a school in Maryland, USA has been fired after sending a particularly savage burn to a student over Twitter.

NYMag reports that Nathan, a student at Frederick County, tweeted the school account in early January requesting that school be closed the next day (it was snowing - who wouldn't want the day off?). Unfortunately, he messed up his spelling, leading the web coordinator, Katie Nash, to show him just why education is so important...


Nailed him!

Sadly though, the local school system clearly have no sense of humour, with Nash ordered to delete the tweet before being fired the following week, despite the fact that she'd been encouraged to provide "more engagement" with students across their social accounts.

But worst of all, not only did Nathan not take the good natured tweet seriously, he's still struggling to spell correctly...



Come on Nathan, get it together!
