Ann Arbor's Ultimate Cultural Divide: University of Michigan vs Ohio State
"Who put the Ohio State sign in the King School parking lot?"
Upon arriving at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School this morning, Principal Kevin Karr was dismayed to discover this act of resistance/sabotage in the school parking lot, which prompted a blog post in which he writes:
“Today when I arrived at King School, I was greeted with the following in the parking lot. When this type of thing happens at school, it is obviously VERY concerning . . . and it quickly sets in motion an investigation to find out who is responsible. Putting up Ohio State University signs in or around school is NEVER acceptable!”
The King School Principal's parking spot sign usually sports a block M
A gust of wind reveals that the Principal's parking spot is usually designated with a big University of Michigan block M. Is that standard for Ann Arbor Public Schools?
