A term for public schools used by right-wing conspiracy nuts who believe (erroneously) that the quality is generally lower than private schools or homeschooling, or that all that happens there is liberal indoctrination. The person using the term almost never has any actual experience with or knowledge about public schools or education in general, and the use of the term is a reliable indicator that the user is a member of the tinfoil hat crowd whose opinion on any subject should be taken with a dump truck full of salt. Sometimes pronounced "guv'mint school."
All they teach you at that there guv'mint school ("Government School") is that the moon landing weren't faked, that global warming hokum, and that there evolooshun. I keep mah kids home and homeschool 'em so they knows that the Earth is on'y 6,000 years old, and Jeebus rode dinosaurs.
