We did learn it at school (Julius Caesar and Macbeth) and most people found it really boring.
I actually find Shakespeare really interesting, I once got hold of a huge fat book with all of his plays and read my way through a bunch. Anyone else like that, or am I truly unique? :)

Shakespeare wrote plays! They are meant to be performed by skilled actors, not sat down and read.
This is the huge problem with teaching it in schools, it is not something that was ever intended to be read like a book. Watch a live performance or a movie version and you will see the story come to life.2
