Luckily, school’s out! Besides the eggcorn, there are at least five other errors in only two sentences: two “its”, two “who”, and one “then”.

From an actual teacher on a teacher-centric newsgroup—K12.chat.teacher (news://newsgroups.comcast.net:119/25udn … resnan.com)

But in the Private School System, its more about who they keep out, then who
they let in, so its a trade off really.”
