This incredibly creative tactic stems from an initiative called Celeb Grammar Cops, which the school unveiled earlier this year. These so-called Celeb Grammar Cops are actually students between the ages of 8 and 13. They seek out tweets from celebrities and (very politely) correct any errors in grammar, punctuation, or syntax.

Get the full story here. There are even pictures of the kids. It’s almost too wonderful.
