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."
