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.

My English teacher is better than any of your teachers

So we're about to start a unit on reading Maus I in class. When we're about to start the everything, my English teacher started by collecting our homework. But instead, he told us to close our eyes and put our heads down as he would come by and take our homework. Then after collecting our homework, he told us all to get up and basically do a bunch of weird shit involving balancing on one leg for 30 seconds or stretching or whatever.

After all of the everything, we sit back down and my English teacher starts talking about authority, and how it related to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. It turns out that whole thing we did that I mentioned above was a kind of test. We were asked why we did what he had told us to do, everyone replied, simply, that he was the teacher. That he had authority over us. Then he started this lecture-type thing with a PowerPoint and explained how he had hoped that some of us would at least honestly ask him why he told us to do what he told us to do, and how there should always be some point where you need to question authority or not do what you're told to do.
And that's why my English teacher is better than all of your teachers combined.

On a related note, he looks exactly like Galen and believes that there's no real "age of maturity". As far as I know, he's also not affected with dumbass disease (disease that shuts down your pre-frontal cortex, which controls common sense).

Mr. Wheeler kicks your english teachers ass. He teaches Japanese, comes into class drunk, let's us do fuckerver when we were meant to be fishing (PIE) and he doesn't believe in that mythical age of maturity. And he's mustache/beard (they're the same thing 0.o) is awesome.

My History teacher could kick the shit out of your teacher, she teaches us a lot of poli-sci stuff rather than the petty history of the US dumbed down to look pretty suff, we learned about how we treated Native Americans, slaves, women, and Mexicans.

Re: My English teacher is better than any of your teachers

my shop teacher kicks ass,

yesterday it was snowing and we had to go to school. So he was all pissed since he hit a curb or something, So when some kid asked him why we had to go to school he said "Because our damn superintendent is on crack!" Then he stared mumbling about her being a bitch.

I lol'd

Plus, you can use any of the tools in the shop and do whatever the fuck you want as long as your not breaking shit. generally you can do nothing because the grade is based on if he see's you doing something and you show up. So, I make wooden vampire steaks all day.

Had to move on. Account is dead.
