Schools exist first and foremost to employ people (read teacher union members)
Schools exist second to employ support staff (the billions of other "social workers" "counselors" "assistant reserve vice principle" needed to support said teachers)
Schools exist third to act as effective day care operations for children, the parents of which had and completely underestimated how much it would take to raise a kid and just decided to make the taxpayer pay for baby sitting.
Schools exist lastly to educate those precious little pawns...errr...chilllllldreeeeen.
And so, it is nice to know that somebody came up with the exact same observation I did as a 2nd grader:
Schools are functionally similar to concentration camps for children. The relationship between students and teachers is therefore equivalent to that between concentration camp inmates and their guards and overseers.
