Educamation (jocular spelling of “education”)

“Educamation” is a jocular spelling for the word “education.” “Educamation” has been cited in print since at least 1998 and does not appear to have any obvious author.
 
Other humorous misspellings of “education” include “edjamacation,” “educashun,” “educayshun” and “edumacation.”

PS:  Congratulations to commenter “Educamation” for what appears to be a Dr. John reference.  The word appears in his song “I’m Qualified,” whose premise might appear to John Holt—you don’t need a degree to be qualified for some things.
(The 1973 Dr. John song “Qualified” has “edumacation,” not “educamation”—ed.)
