(Meredith) - It's not a mistake you'd expect to see just feet away from a school -- the word "school" spelled incorrectly.

A motorist spotted the error Thursday at a pedestrian crossing in Doral, Florida. A private contractor attempted to paint the word "school," but instead spelled it "scohol."

"It's not a good thing when you misspell school. It's not a good look. At all," bystander Maxwell Easter told WPLG

After photos of the mistake started circulating on social media, the city tweeted that the contractor was working to fix it.

"This SCHOOL zone striping was handled by the developer's contractor," the tweet read. "They have been notified and are working expeditiously to correct. Thank you to all who brought this very important matter to our attention."
