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.

Something that seems to be dumb when you're in it but when you are finished you realize that you haven't wasted your time unless you didn't even care to try. It helps you learn but can have shitty teachers in it.
I hate my teacher at school.

A government institution (In most countries) dedicated to teaching persons, from a young age, vital skills that allow them to enter into the work force and function in society. Despite the usefulness, the majority of said persons would rather bitch and moan about it than use it to their advantage. It is of great solace to the minority that the majority end up having a tough life.

The failure of this is also the primary cause for 65-70% of the internet sucking and nothing particularly interesting happening in the world today (Except for the economy, of course.)

That said, homework still sucks.
A place where everyone secretly hates each other includin students, staff and teachers and is a nightmare. They force you to do useless work while they also expect you to put up with peer pressure,your home life and social life.
school sucks..

A place, although it's boring, everyone loves to bitch about, whilst actually failing to acknowledge that you need to succeed in school to into any college, university, and 90% of good paying careers.
Jimmy dropped out because he was "too cool for school". Jimmy now has a wonderful career at Burger King, and suffers a lot from boredom and depression.

An establishment created by the government for the common good. While some subjects offered at public schools are frivolous, the majority of classes teach skills that can be applied in higher learning environments or real-life settings. Often regarded by ungrateful youths as a punishment or cruel confinement.

It is neither of these, but rather a luxury that not all countries afford their citizens. Public schools give children the opportunity of free learning. Those who can be bothered to pass their classes can earn a diploma so that they may go on to college where they can get a degree that will prevent the necessity of a career in waste disposal, fast food, or retail.
Hooray, I'm so glad that school is free! Now I can make something of my life instead of suckling the government's teat by living off of welfare because I didn't feel like going to class! I'm going to be a rocket scientist, while those who didn't apply themselves will spend the rest of their lives in abject poverty, bouncing from drug addiction to unplanned children to prostitution!
