A Brief Word on Nomenclature

By skoolboy — September 02, 2008 1 min read

Even though eduwonkette and skoolboy have been unmasked, skoolboy plans to continue to refer to himself in the third person. Why? If I did it at school, my students would laugh me out of the classroom. If I did it at home, my wife would kick my butt. So let me (er, skoolboy) have some fun, OK?

And for the record: both skoolboy and eduwonkette are lower case. Only proper nouns warrant capitalization, and it should be clear by now that skoolboy isn’t very proper.

The opinions expressed in eduwonkette are strictly those of the author(s) and do not reflect the opinions or endorsement of Editorial Projects in Education, or any of its publications.
