Most of those that post on this website need to go to school, namely because of the immense number of grammitical and spelling mistakes.

School is a building of classrooms, hallways, auditoriums, gymnasiums, labs, etc. The main purpose of school is to teach people from the ages 4-18. The core subjects are mainly English Language, History or Social Studies, Mathematics, and Science. Some students love school (I doubt it) some students believe school is alright and some students hate it.
Student #1- School is so BORING.

Student #2- I know right!

Student #1- I got a D on my science test.

Student #2- That sucks.

Student #1- It so does!

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!
