At qualityplanners.com, we hear the terms “student planner” and “school planner” used interchangeably.
People searching for student planners for middle school students, high school students, college students, and special need students seem as likely to use one term as the other.
But you might have noticed we’ve tipped our hand. We use the term “student planner.”
Yet sometimes we wonder: is it “six of one, half a dozen of the other?” Is there any logic to why some use one term and some use the other?
From time to time, the media will publish a map of the US indicating that people refer to carbonated soft drinks as “Soda,” while others say “Pop,” and still others “Coke.”

There seem to be definite and historical regional preferences when it comes to terms.
Unfortunately, we can’t determine the same for “student planner” and “school planner.”
So we asked ourselves, Is there a generational reference for “student planner” or “school planner?”
We thought of this when recalling a funny moment in an episode of Modern Family where young Manny laments that his step-dad, Jay, “still calls the remote the clicker.”
Alas, yet again, there seems to be no generational divide when it comes to “student planner” and “school planner.”
It seems that we have reached the point of “tomato to-mah-to.”
We’d love to hear from you on this subject so send us your thoughts.
