A place where you go to until you are an adult where you get taught how to solve the opposite angles of triangles and the humour in Shakespeare, but nothing about how to pay a bill, write a cheque, find a flat.

(To all saying that school is necessary for a decent life, I challenge that having a brain is required for a decent life. I'm a college dropout yet I'm doing well enough at the moment working for a decent company in a job that's a laugh riot compared to the dejection, bullying and harassment suffered in education from the age of 5.)
"Don't they teach you anything in school these days?"
- "Er, not really, we learn how to ace standardised tests"

This is a typical Monday morning, upon waking up and glancing at the glaring alarm clock, reading "6:00 a.m." to dragging your aching body into your bed at 11:00 p.m., after doing 4 hours of homework::

6:02 a.m.=After dozing off again for two minutes, my mother comes into my room and screams at me to get up. Not wanting to argue at this time, I sluggishly arise from my warm bed, into the cold bathroom where I take a two minute shower. I get soap in my eyes and forget to shampoo my hair. Oh well, I don't have time anyway. I dress quickly and brush my teeth, not having any time to eat.

7:30 a.m.=I sit in first period class, after getting off the bus, where I spent the last 15 minutes with a pack of screaming children, and try to "rest" in my hard seat and desk. I get yelled at by my teacher, whom hasn't brushed her teeth in a month, and get 2 days of after-school detention.
I wipe my sleepy eyes and try to focus on my algebra book, which has crude drawings in it. I speak to my teacher about this, whom just screams at me again for not having permission to speak. Two more nights detention.

12:30 p.m=I sit alone in the cafeteria, where all the seats are taken by the "popular" people, who are too busy texting and listening to their mp3 players to acknowledge my existence. I sit at a table in the corner, where 3-day-old fries cause a horrible smell, and cause me to lose my appetite. Oh well, I have no lunch money anyway. The janitor leans against the wall and eyes me carefully. His nose hairs are so long, I feel a strange urge to braid them. I lay my head down on the table, and a cafeteria worker yells at me to wake up.

3:00 p.m.=I arrive home from school, lugging almost all the contents of my locker in my backpack. I sit down and do and hour and a half of my homework, before going to softball practice.

8:30 p.m.=Covered in dirt from practice, I only have time to eat a Hot Pocket and continue the rest of my homework.

11:00 p.m.=With an unfinished project still due, I collapse on my bed, knowing the next day I will obtain further punishment for my unfinished assignment. I groan and crawl under the covers. Thoughts of problems at school cause me to not sleep, and before I know it the alarm clock sounds off and the cycle repeats.

To be blunt = SCHOOL SUCKS!
School sucks! I can't wait for Summer Vacation! Get me out of this hellhole the government forced me to spend 13 years of my life! SOS! SOS!

Concentration camp for children. Set up to teach people to become docile and obedient subjects of capitalism and the state. This is achieved through mind-numbing, attacks on individual identity, and various degrees of disguised terror, usually (but not always) concealed by a double-bind.

Often combined with indoctrination into dominant ideas and training in skills useful to bosses.
