Rule 1: All Students and faculty must sleep within the School.

Rule 2: In the beginning of the school day all students and faculty must spend a minimum of 1 hour on Reddit, yes that includes kindergartners.

Rule 3: All students and faculty must be trained daily in Muay Thai, BJJ, articulacy and extensive firearm training.

Rule 4: Chemical Engineering is the default subject to study. Only after a student completes the bachelor's degree program may they pursue other interest.

Rule 5: The only food to be served will be eggs, oatmeal, and vitamin pills.

Rule 6: Students must graduate by the age of 15.

(Violation of any of these rules is punishable by either paddling, detention, suspension, termination, or execution.)

What do you guys think?

Rule 1: All Students and faculty must sleep within the School.
This would not work because faculty and students have home lives. This would most likely both drive down desire to be a teacher AND cause a great deal of 'green flight' from the public school system.

Rule 2: In the beginning of the school day all students and faculty must spend a minimum of 1 hour on Reddit, yes that includes kindergartners.
This would work because reddit is sp large. Any educational benefit that someone might obtain from reddit would be enhanced by the cooperative learning environment that sub-reddits on grade level and math level that would evolve by necessity.

Rule 3: All students and faculty must be trained daily in Muay Thai, BJJ, articulacy and extensive firearm training.
This will not work, with the price of proper professionals to do such training, and your requirement that everyone live at the school, the ability to fund such a program is mind boggling. On top of that having everyone properly trained in fighting techniques will create so much discipline and health that it would destroy the fast growing food, porn, and drug industries.

Rule 4: Chemical Engineering is the default subject to study. Only after a student completes the bachelor's degree program may they pursue other interest.
Chemical engineering is the wrong answer here. Clearly the only useful degree is genetic evolutionary anthropology. Further, a strong knowledge of chemical engineering would only solve the 'drug war' problem at one level: the number of new designer drugs hitting the streets would reach such epic proportions that we would never be able to brand, package, and profit from any one drug.
Rule 5: The only food to be served will be eggs, oatmeal, and vitamin pills.
Good idea.
Rule 6: Students must graduate by the age of 15.
Just give everyone an A: Problem solved.

There needs to be a point-system for violations where in those who look like they have the least potential get fewer points when they screw up.

It's always claimed that education is massively important but in reality it is nearly an afterthought. A building to send fat little kids to be tended to by fat ignorant women.

Currently there is no meaningful consequence for failing, like summer bootcamp, and no meaningful reward for succeeding, like earning citizenship. In general I agree with the OP.

being stuck in a minimum wage job is a more meaningful consequence than a summer bootcamp

congratulations on being the 2nd dumbest person in this thread

Fantastic idea! Let's use you as the guinea pig to test out the system. Instead of Reddit, though, let's make you post in our P&N forum for an hour every day.
