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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

Hey! I truant and I have a larger vocabulary then most of the teachers in my district! So stop generalizing, it's one of the reasons this is happening in the first place, don't you realize that that kind of behavior merely traps us in a cycle!?

Anyway, the scared straight program is apparently easy to avoid if you know how...

I wasn't generalizing. Most americans young and old are completely ignorant when it comes to our legal system... or anything else for that matter. That includes most truants.

Therefore most truants wouldn't know the legal definition of 'status offence'.

Would you be so kind as to give us the definition?

Re: Fuck the 'Scared Straight' program!

K, i'm lost.

What does that have to do with anything?

Is she/he justifying this, or agreeing with everyone on the forum that it's wrong?

The fact that truancy is a status offence. It's not punishable after the offender reaches the age of 18. Therefore it would be almost impossible to scare a truant who knows this, becuase they would know that they would know that they can only be punished for a small period of time.

I was making fun of the administrator who commented at the end of the article that "now we have (court) that has guaranteed impact." Obviously you and 火 don't have a sense of humor. Or you would've realized that when you read the next part of my post;

Re: Fuck the 'Scared Straight' program!

Yeah, because I don't have a sense of humor just because I didn't realize what you were saying.

You do make a good point though. Once you turn 18, this shit is over with.

Just another reason this douchebag is a joke.

Hey, did any of you notice how he had a bunch of SpongeBob memoribilia in his office, or something like that? That was hilarious...

I'm pretty sure we had shit at this at my school. It really gives off the fascist feel. Holy fuck I'm so removed from high school I hardly remember the manipulation bullshit that they put me through.
