I say no. I also say elaborate on your position or you have a rather pointless OP as you give us nothing to actually think about.

At least, in my experience at least.

Hardly is it slavery. Could it be justified better for mandatory attendance? Hell yes.

No, it's not slavery. I don't particularly enjoy going to school every day, but really, I'd go insane if I didn't have it - what else is there if you want to get a really good job? (In these times, I mean). I decided to stay on to do 2 years before university (6th form). If I felt it was slavery then I wouldn't choose to go - obviously. Also, I feel that by going I really do >benefit< from it. If I didn't go, I'd know nothing about politics and thus have no interest in this game :)

Not for any reasonable definition of slavery, no.

I'm kinda fed up of people arguing that any curtailment of their liberty, however easily justifiable, is 'slavery'. Clearly there's a sexy party in the hyperbole-mobile and I wasn't invited.

School is a good thing. You learn, you prepare for real life, and you make friends. It's not slavery, because technically you pay to be there.

"Never be deceived that the rich will permit you to vote away their wealth." - Lucy Parsons
Socialism is an economic system characterised by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy. "Social ownership" may refer to cooperative enterprises, common ownership, state ownership, citizen ownership of equity, or any combination of these. There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them. They differ in the type of social ownership they advocate, the degree to which they rely on markets or planning, how management is to be organised within productive institutions, and the role of the state in constructing socialism.

In my mind, (and this would be only good for myself and other achievers, it would suck for the nation itself) mandatory education should be struck void. It would create a much larger gap between those who achieve and those who do not, and make school better for those who actually want to learn something.
Plus, it would allow those who work hard to actually be successful. Eh?
