* Detroit Central High School in [[SurvivalOfTheFittest SOTF-TV]] is of the budget issues variant. Played in complete contrast to the other school of SOTF-TV, Silver Dragon Academy (a prestigious private school).

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', Moperville North High School is run by principal Verrückt in a somewhat crazy way -- such as blowing the security budget on propaganda, so there are no sprinklers or fire alarm autodialers, but lots of [[FauxtivationalPoster motivational murals]]. And then it starts enforcing a dress code, because ''one'' minor fight broke out over a student's shirt, which had resolved itself amicably without teacher intervention before the faculty even found out about it.

* Chris' school on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' uses the textbooks part of the trope as seen on the episode "No Chris Left Behind".
* Tom Landry Middle School in ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' shows budget and policy issues that reflects real life public school system whenever it's brought up by Principal Moss. Examples include a shop class converted into a study room when the school couldn't afford a substitute teacher or equipment, Bunsen burners that aren't hooked up to a gas line, and newly published Texas history textbooks that tells nothing significant about the history of Texas.

* ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' had to go back to one in the episode ''Back to School''. However, this justifies the fact that Cat is treated as TheUnfavorite to every teacher in student in that school.

** Miss Simian hates her job as teacher (mostly because she's been assaulted and ostracized for teaching subject matter considered subversive or controversial, such as how to make fire and how to use the wheel, as mentioned on "The Pest"), has very little regard for her students' safety/well-being, and is most likely still a teacher because she's dating Principal Brown.

* The "Skool" from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' is regularly acknowledged as both militant and under budget. Illustrative of this are the "hall passes", from the "Dark Harvest" episode, the first being a collar that explodes upon leaving school premises and the "auxilliary hall pass" being a radiator the student is expected to lug around.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Not only does Sunnydale High fulfill pretty much every bad high school trope in existence, it's also on top of a Hellmouth that gets a substantial number of the students and staff killed on a regular basis.

to:

* ''Series/StrangeHillHigh'': The headmaster is constantly cutting corners to save money, the teachers are either [[SadistTeacher sadists]] or idiots, the ScaryLibrarian does not like children touching the books, the caretaker has been at the school for centuries. Oh, and the entire school is a nexus for weird events.

* The crossover ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12028946/1/Senpai Senpai: A Story of Good Friends]]'' has, true to the source material, [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Furinkan ]], [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Tomobiki and Butsumetsu]] high schools (the latter having a junior high section that is identified as the school Ranma went at before going to China, where students routinely fought for the best meal), well known for their unruly and underperforming students. Turns out [[InvokedTrope someone's doing it on purpose]]: [[spoiler:Asuka Saginomiya runs a switching grades ring, with the grades of the best students from the supposedly lesser schools being switched around for those of people who can pay for the honor of entering the supposedly elite Kolkhoz High. With some of the people screwed up this way being Nabiki and Kasumi]]. Needless to say, when Kodachi (who has moved to Furinkan after her brother was hospitalized) and her student council (including, among others, Ranma and Nabiki) find out, [[{{Understatement}} they're not happy]].

** Its UpdatedRerelease, ''Absence of Detention'', gives us Death Institute Majin Academy. Even though it is an elite school mend to raise Majins, the only actual Majins in the school are the Student Body President Stella Grossular and the Chief Director and her father, [[spoiler:who has been dead for a long time]]. In fact, the school has hardly any students and has been in the brink of being shut down. Stella's entire motivation has been to ruin the Evil Academy's reputation so that Majin Academy can get a boost in popularity.

* Jerome Horwitz Elementary in ''CaptainUnderpants''. The school library is shown as being almost completely free of books, with a librarian who discourages reading. The school also has signs posted [[AssimilationAcademy encouraging mindless conformity]]. The teachers are also pretty much entirely either idiots or [[SadistTeacher sadists]].
