CBS Chicago (where else?)
he Chicago Public Schools system has apologized for sending an email to parents that included a typo in a web link that sent them to an erotic website as a result.
The email was meant to notify parents of state changes to the Ilinois Standards Achievement Test, or ISAT, and was supposed to link them to the Illinois State Board of Education website.
But there was a small problem: an extra letter on part of the email address.
The typo in question linked parents to a website that displays the Kama Sutra on a bed, and declares that the group “works together to explore and enrich the modern woman’s sex life and sensuality.”
A spokeswoman for the Chicago Public Schools acknowledged the typo.
“As soon as it was brought to our attention, we sent out an updated letter with a corrected link and apologized for any inconvenience it may have caused,” she said.
A corrected email was sent to parents within about two hours of the mistake, along with the message: “Apologies for the inconvenience!”
