So, in that case, "eschool" for "school" is neither standard nor nonstandard as it's never used by native English speakers.

<< My Spanish friends pronounce "school" as "eschool". Is that standard or non-standard English pronunciation? LOL! >>

I am growing tired of these condescending LOLs. With all due respect, please either grow up or shut up.

To answer your question, something can only be "correct" or "incorrect" according to a standard in the first place. I do sometimes talk about correct and incorrect pronunciation/grammar, but I use these terms with the understanding that this is shorthand for "English that native speakers will generally accept". Native speakers will generally accept "used to" without two [t] sounds and many produce it that way themselves. The issue with "eschool" is that it doesn't fit into any dialect of English as spoken by native speakers; it is an "error" caused by the fact that Spanish words cannot start with "s" and another consonant.
