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.

Fuck Edgenuity/E2020

I am fully aware that it's risky to bash an online education program as my first post on a forum like this, but hear me out.
Edgenuity, or E2020 was assigned to me by my school so I can keep studying even though I'm out of school for a while (I really don't want to get into why). It fucking sucks. If you think that traditional schools brainwash you, you will be ASTOUNDED by how much a committee has fucked the courses. There's just so much bullshit, the questions are designed to trick you and not to test your understanding, the teachers are incompetent, and the courses are very narrow in their scope for any one subject.
I never thought I'd say this but I miss traditional school because at least there, when I tried and when my teacher gave a shit (a rare combination I admit), I would understand something and not just memorize shit for a test.
I understand why people like online classes. Don't get me wrong, the fact that I can test out of lessons before I take them has had me flying through shit at a rate I could never do in real life. But even stuff that interests me (english and history) are fucking awful in this program and I barely pay attention.
I don't claim to know how to make an individualized system that works for everyone. I don't even know how to fix edgenuity. I'm just pissed off at this stupid fucking setup, and I hope that seeing my pissed off rant might help some other people who don't like this class.
