One Sign Explains So Much About Wisconsin's K-12 Education Problem

Seven words (and three spelling and grammatical mistakes) on a sign at a Boston Market thoroughly explain the state of K-12 education in Wisconsin. When the restaurant had to close because of a carbon monoxide leak over the weekend, an employee posted a sign on the door informing customers of this fact. It, well, it was something.

Not only is "do" incorrectly used as "due," but "are" and "a" are missing, and "close" should be "closed." The sign should have read "Sorry, we're closed due to a gas leak," but this apparently is what happens when only 40% of K-12 students in Wisconsin are proficient in reading.
