Welcome, I am the Government. We have a plan for your future, kid. Society will lap you like a wolf laps blood.

1. Curriculum: it is by the enforcement of curriculum that we can positively ensure your mental intake of information is kept in a rigid line. You will have no time to experience other things; even if you did you would feel guilty. “What a waist of space in my mind” You’d think.

2. Exams: It is by the continuous use of exams that we can ensure your self-esteem remains at an all-time low. Lower grades means lower respect. You will be called an idiot; you will have low chances in life. The alternative is to succumb to the weight of society, allow us to control your mind. It is easier this way. We promise.

3. Ritualistic mornings: This is the fun part! You now will have to awaken at early hours. Yes any chance of true restfulness is completely imposable. Do you ever walk into school and feel, for a split second, as though you are unconscious? That is how we want you to feel all the time. That is the point in early mornings.

4. Social humiliation: Yes, we didn’t plan this out. So don’t think we’ll take credit for it, yes this part is all thanks to you. It not only away chips away your self-esteem it also encourages hatred, which you will feel toward foreign nations later in life. We guarantee it.

5. Repetitiveness: It is by the continuous repetitiveness of your scholarly years that we can encourage a clockwork feeling within you.

6. Useless information: By presenting you with this information we can disallow independent thought. While you may begin to think for yourself your teacher, asking you to pay attention, will continually interrupt you. This is one of my favourites!

7. Obedience: Yes this is firmly set into the school world. Discipline, self-discipline, thought-discipline hell it’s all here! We take great pride in our ability to control you. Our shrill voices echoing down the corridor. Yes you needn’t ever feel safe, in or out of school. Be afraid, be very afraid.

8. Long term: This will last sometime; you probably won’t be able to remember a time you weren’t in school. No mode of comparison, excellent.

9. Holidays: We have carefully timed these so that they are long enough to maintain sanity but short enough to deter independent thought.

10. Work ethic: You cannot be a worker without work ethic.

We hope you enjoy your stay. Don’t try to escape, even if the gate is always open.
You are free to do as we tell you.

An institution set up in the USA in order to train industrial workers by teaching people not to think for themselves and lowering their confidence in their own abilities and expectations of their futures. By implying a sense of duty and attacking individual interests and forcing a generalized curriculum that attempts to destroy the individual, people are trained not to think, given a feeling that they need to work under someone to succeed, and mainly keeping American economy and society functioning like a machine with the people as its parts.
If you come on to Urban Dictionary to bash school, you need to go back to school and listen to what everyone says. After all, everyone knows that people who drop out of school are losers who do not realize that challenging the social order in a twisted society will get you no where.

Another word for "tortchure." I place where you sit for 7 hours every single day bored out of your mind, and then to make it all worse, they give you homework so when you FINALLY get to go home and relax you remember..."oh wait, I cant relax, because I have HOMEWORK."
"Wow. This prison cell sure feels a lot like school."

School was once a place where people went to learn. Now teachers do nothing but try to teach children to fear authority. Yet, they don't even do that right. You see, I can flip off a teacher and get 2 days of ISS. Yet, I also get beat up by a couple of seniors who don't take any punishment. School is also a place where you are beaten up by bullies, and learn bad habbits.

Because of everything I said you probably think I hate school. Well your wrong. I get to talk to girls at school.
School would suck if it wasn't for girls.
