** 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]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': While the facilities in Elmore Junior High are actually pretty good for a middle school (since the backgrounds [[RealPlaceBackground come from on a real-life high school]]), the staff members are the ones who are incompetent/poorly qualified:

The opposite of ElaborateUniversityHigh, a school that isn't very good at teaching because of budget issues and/or PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad. Expect the textbooks to be massively out of date and have [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp Cold War era information]] at best. It may or may not be an AssimilationAcademy. The school is often full of [[SadistTeacher ridiculously mean teachers]] and run by an [[DeanBitterman even worse principal]].

principal]]. The trope is often used to satirize or dramatize how horrible the public school system is (especially if this trope is used in an American work, as parents and adults worrying over the quality of children's education is a major issue).



* [[TheSimpsons Springfield Elementary]] is regularly noted to be on a shoestring budget, mostly due to Principal Skinner (a Vietnam vet who still has flashbacks and lives with his controlling mother) slashing the budget to the point that the kids drink "malk" and the meat is "Grade F."

* Lawndale High School in ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'', where the paranoid principal, Ms. Li, regularly siphons off funding intended for education into elaborate, expensive and unnecessary security and surveillance systems. She then attempts to make up the shortfall with dodgy get-rich-quick schemes and bogus sponsorship deals. All new pupils are psychologically screened, the teaching staff tend towards being either sugary idealists or burnt-out cases with deep-seated personal issues, and extremely bright pupils are mistrusted as they tend to ask awkward questions. Daria Morgendorffer fits as well as a fish on a bicycle, and knows it.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'': While the facilities in Elmore Junior High are actually pretty good for a middle school (since the backgrounds [[RealPlaceBackground come from on a real-life high school]]), but the staff members are incompetent/poorly qualified:
** Principal Brown somehow has had his job as principal for 20 years, despite having a fake diploma.
** 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, often in school during class hours.
** Mr. Small, the guidance counselor, is more of an emotional wreck than anyone who comes to see him and is possibly a stoner.
** The school nurse has to put up with Teri the paper bear's hypochondria and spends most of her time huddled under her desk, trying to re-evaluate her career choices.
** The gym teacher/coach is bulky, out of shape, and doesn't seem to care when a student gets hurt or can't do anything she assigns them during gym class.

* The titular school of ''Harenchi Gakuen'' (it translates as "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Shameless School]]"), where the insane teachers go around naked, torment their students and even molest them sexually, and have tried to outright ''murder them'' more than once... And the students are just as bad. [[CrapsackWorld It's stated there's an international network of such schools]], with the Italian one getting shut down (as in ''bombed to rubble with all students and teachers killed'', with only one teacher escaping) at some point and the first part of the series having the Japanese one fall to the same fate.
