RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Lets Get Started Now

For ever a Lurker, never a Poster.
Might be even more said for. "Always watching, yet doing nothing about it."

Reading the Title of a previous thread, "Maybe we should start something" made me want to answer.

Lets start something.

My Username Identifies me as VERevolution, in short, "Voice of Educational Reform." This is what we hope to achieve, a Voice that empowers others to "do something about it" and that something is Revolution; to change, to Transform.
More Specifically, lets Change Public Education.

A bit about us, We started as an Idea running through 2012-13 by 3 High School Students who were tired of the institution that held us in their grasps.

A firm believe was set, A change must be made with Students, by Students, and for Students.
This doesn't mean others can't help, but instead this emphasizes the need for recognition of Students. Students can make a direct impact on their schools personally.

We believe it's time to step up to the plate and make this change.
And so we are.
We have documentation written on organization and guidelines that allow us to go in prepare rather than plunging in the dark.

Right now we're looking to open up a Think-Tank, and with this comes the need for the Voices themselves. This is where You come in.
Students, Teachers, Parents, Anyone with a interest in changing Public Education for the Students by the Students.

We're hoping to engage through Voice via Skype
If you're interested, Please PM your Skype Username, or
E-mail: VERpowered@gmail.com

If you wish to inquire more by other means, Post below and We'll be happy to respond.

Regards and Good Luck,
- Justin (On behalf of VERevolution)
