A complete and utter waste of precious childhood.
You wake up at six in the morning to go to a building which resembles a federal prison. There, you go from class to class, repeating the same thing over and over every day. You get obsolete, inconsequential bullshit shoved down your throat by people who are only there for the money and time off. Then, you get tested on this bullshit, and if you fail because you don't understand, then that's too bad, which totally defeats the purpose of learning anyways. Meanwhile, you are forced to interact with mindless clone bot teenagers who only care about drugs, sex, and the mall. And if that's not enough, they send you away with more bullshit, also known as homework, to do during your only free time at home when you could be pursuing your own interests that might at some point be relevant to the life you want to lead instead of the one the fucking government chooses for you. In the future, you will never need to know quadratic formulas and geometry unless you plan on becoming a mathematician. To sum it all up, school is a big competition to weed out the "smartest" people who the government hopes will one day take reign over their cesspool of fucking moronic imbeciles which is leading our country to hell. Our only hope is that one day someone who can see through this will break free from this penitentiary and make some much needed reforms.
If you ever need to know anything they teach you in school in real life, there's this nifty little thing called GOOGLE.

The single worst place in the universe.
Where human rights are banished upon stepping into a room. You cannot sip water, eat, go to the toilet or have a fair trial. The place where we are beaten up, bullied, stolen from, forced to write until you have aches in our arms, where you cannot speak without fear of horrible punishment. Where if seven hours of solid work is not enough to impress a teacher, you are given two hours of homework.
AND, if the homework is incomplete, you are forced into detention for three hours, tearing up paper.
School is the only place that can get away with such universal cruelty. Oh, and apparently, education is too good to miss. BULLSHIT.
Typical school scene

Student: May I go to the toilet
Teacher: No
Student: Please.
Teacher: I've already told you you incolent fool
(5 mins later)
Student: Ive wet myself
Teacher: Well why dident you go to the toilet
Student: You said I couldent
Teacher: How DARE you question me!
two hours detention!
Student: but...
Teacher: Three hours

An institution originally noncompulsory, now a forced hellhole where otherwise reasonably intelligent people are forced to go for 14 years.

It instills in them a great hatred of what they otherwise would not despise; for example, many children who hate history don't actually hate the Civil War. They just hate that they're being forced to memorize names and dates. If they were left to their own devices, they would probably end up knowing the basics about the Civil War without having to spend pointless hours proving to some mindless beaurocrat that they know what they're talking about.

An institution that takes too long to not do enough. An institution that makes people believe that it is the only way anyone will ever learn anything or meet anyone. Apparently the real world and libraries and the Internet are not valid places of learning or places to socialize. Nope, you have to go with all the other inmates in an environment where you get no respect at all from dipshits with a special piece of paper that says they know how to humiliate you.

Pavlov's dogs, but teenagers.

A place where they're so freaking retarded they can't just make school noncompulsory. If it were noncompulsory, after a while everyone would get bored with playing video games and wander in to school to go to the chemistry lab where a chemist would show them how to do what they wanted to do.

A place where people assume you're incapable of just picking up Dickens on your own, so they have to force you to read Oliver Twist NOW so you'll hate classic literature all your life.

A place where well-meaning people destroy creativity.

School is not learning. People hate school, not a^2+b^2=c^2. They hate having to wake up early after doing homework late, having to go to a place where they have no free will and come home to where it's just reinforced by their parents.

School creates a huge inferiority complex and denies us our status as humans so corporations come in and promise us the chance to feel something intense if we just buy their snake oil. A chance to be respected if we buy their shoes, wear their wristbands, bring our mp3 players around in our $300 backpacks specially designed for the $800 bike we ride around so we can complain when we go through a puddle and splash our overpriced jeans made by abused children in India.

School is hell.
Student: Mr. Smith, when was the last time you needed to know the population density of Finland?

Teacher: IF YOU DON'T LEARN THIS POINTLESS SHIT EVEN MOST FINNS PROBABLY DON'T KNOW, YOU'LL NEVER GO ON TO A REALLY EXPENSIVE SCHOOL TO IMPRESS ANOTHER PROFESSOR, AND THEN GET A PIECE OF PAPER TO IMPRESS ANOTHER BEAUROCRAT!

Student:... Fuck this, I'm going to go carve wood.

Teacher: GET BACK HERE! DETENTION!

10 years later: ...He attributes his massive success to skipping school so he could practice woodcarving, which when coupled with his love of music led him to carve flutes. Now 26, Mr. Student is doing what he loves and living within his means. What a shame the rest of us are brainwashed fucks. This is Anchorman, XYA News.

I am always ready to learn, I am never ready to go to school.

Eric, damn it, you failed your chemistry test! You'll die of lung cancer now!

... But Dad, I want to be a poet...

SHUT UP, ERIC! You're going to fail at life and never get married or have kids or do anything because YOU FAILED HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY!

Dad, do you remember any of your high school chemistry?

Yeah, I remember all of it and it's what's helped me get this bullshit cubicle job. Now go get on your bike and go to school.

Another Indoctrination Center set for children little as 4-early 20s.

It dumbs down society and teaches them to be submissive, and docile drones. You learn useless garbage that has little to no relevance to your life, and that you will forget in months.

A place where they make shit up on the spot, call it a law or rule and give you a punishment for it. A place where authority figures percieve you as bugs in which they can control and do anything to.

A place which indoctrinates you into becoming ready for the lifestyle the government wants you at. It destroys you mentally and physically. A place in which consists of disinformation ie history science english anything you can name.

A place in which destroys your free thinking and creativity. Taught useless things, and called dumb for not doing well. School is useless and consists of just memorizing useless information which you'll forget in several months.

Yeah, I'm done, this shit pisses me off because I have to go to school tomorrow. Home School your kids, it's not illegal!!
My School.
