Hundreds of high school graduates in Florida won’t get their diplomas at ceremonies next week due to poor spelling.

Officials in Lee County in southwest Florida said some diplomas showed up with misspelled names for students and school board members; at least one degree misspelled “chairman.” Some diplomas didn’t arrive at all.

School officials blamed the private contractor, Jostens, for the problems.
