Shouldn't this be/couldn't this be "Ich bin Schuler" (umlaut on the u)?

That's much more common, yes. I don't know if 'ein' is wrong though.

It is not wrong, but I would expect a relative clause to follow like "Ich bin ein Schüler, der immer zu spät kommt." So the "ein" wants a little specification.
