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.

People who hate this place are gonna be pissed when they realise they have to work for a living.
Jimmy thought school was a waste of time. He now drives a bus every day for 12 hour shifts to pay the rent.

A place considered a hellhole by many. Dropping out of school would lead to having a shitty life, trust me.

A place where reluctant children and teens go to learn and do classwork. Often it is a target of insult being called "Hell" "Prison" etc. Of course many of these people don't understand what they have and are too ignorant to see that if they were in differant circumstances they would wish for an education instead of a life of dull physical work. Sure school could be related to that dull physical work but of course it does open oppurtunities to get of it. You just have to get through 12 years.
"At home my parents are strict. They don't let me have a life because they think I'm gonna go and get into trouble, like drugs and other stuff. They don't even know that I'm not that stupid. I like school not because of the stupid work and teachers, but because it's the only place where I can see my friends. Overprotective parents suck."

A children's prison where you learn useless stuff like addition and subtraction, how an electric circuit works, the human body, and a bunch of other crap I don't understand and therefore don't need. It takes away about 25 hours a day from your life and you're stuck going to school every day for like what, 60 years?

We should abolish the education system. Forget being smart. Let's all be dumbasses and wander around and let society collapse in on itself.
Seriously though, go to school. Aside from learning what you are taught in class, you will also develop social skills and other skills that will help you succeed as an adult.

It's funny how people learn a lot of material in school, and then decide to bite the hand that feeds them by using their knowledge of spelling grammar, and their acquired thinking skills to write a definition on how it's a "legalized concentration camp" that teaches information that "you'll never need." If you're one of the people who wrote such definitions, go ahead and drop out of school. Go ahead and let your mind rot. We'll see who has the last laugh.
