WASHINGTON—The Education Department is getting social media criticism after misspelling the name of a prominent African-American sociologist — and then mistyping again when apologizing for the error. In a tweet Sunday morning from its official account, the department attributed a quotation to W.E.B. DeBois (Doo-Boyz’), incorrectly spelling the last name with an “E.” It immediately drew hundreds of responses mocking the department’s misspelling of the sociologist’s last name, which is correctly spelled D-U B-O-I-S.
