Why Students Hate School

Most students hate school because they believe that it is intended to build human capital but all of their classes have near zero real world application.

Since the classes are worthless they feel like they are wasting their time learning things that they don't need. 

If students understood more clearly that the goal of school is to get through school they would have an easier time putting up with the nonsense.  But, if too many understood this the value of the signal would likely diminish.
