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.

I was put in In school suspension for the worst reason.

Earlier today, I was in my world geography class. I like to sit sideways in my seat, its just a habit of mine. My teacher pulled me out of the classroom for it. He gave me a lecture, and he waited for my reply. I said "Sue me."

He asked "Why dont you show some respect for higher authority?"

I replied "Because my parents taught me that if you want respect, you have to earn it. You havent earned it."

His reply? "Then your parents are wrong, they obviously dont know how to raise you"

I was provoked, I wanted to hit him but I instead yelled out "F*** you"

He sent me down to the principals office. I was confident I could win the case, but I was wrong. I told him what had happened, but he took it as a bunch of bogus. *God forbid a teacher do something wrong, right?*

He assigned me 3 days of ISS for disrespecting my teacher and using swear words.
The guy insulted my parents, and I took the punishment.

I'm really on fire right now, I don't know what to do.

Nothing.

Unfortunately part of life is bending over and taking it in the ass from The Man. It sucks.

This.
Get them to go up to the school and complain. I had in school suspension once for a retarded reason also. It was lunch and the bitch wanted me to pick somebody elses food off the floor. I said "no, it isn't mine so I'm not going to pick it up off the floor" and they gave me ISS for that bullshit.

Who am I? Who are YOU?

Re: I was put in In school suspension for the worst reason.

The worst part of ISS at my school is that it's in an internal (no outside windows) room, so after about five hours into the day, your eyes start to hurt from staring down at your paper for so long.

It's a form of sensory deprivation.

Nice attitude there.

Actually, part of life is exactly that if you choose for it to be. If you choose to wisen up and continue to fight, then that's exactly what has become apart of your life.

You don't have to take shit from "The Man" if you choose not to.

As for the OP, fuck that shit. What do you want to do? I'm sure you've told your principal about what your teacher had said. Have you told your parents?

I'd probably go to my counselor to get my schedule changed so I wasn't in that guy's class. If that doesn't work, make it work. If you can fight hard enough to make it happen, it can happen. You are you. They are the enemy.

If you want to serve your unjust 'punishment,' I would understand that as well. But definitely do something about it. Don't just take it up the ass like someone else previously said. Express how angry you are, no matter what happens.

Also, I just realized I spelled "bear" wrong in my sig. I changed it, but, how disgraceful...

It's from attitudes like this that the school system gets away with some of its atrocities. Going down without a fight is only a "part of life" if you decide to make it one. If we were to continue the fight, there may be a time when we stop hearing stuff like this. I'm sure every other group that was denied its rights in the oast was told the same thing...

I vote for telling your parents what happened. Get them to go complain or something.

Re: I was put in In school suspension for the worst reason.

I think you should not expect that the principal will get in toyour side because they look at you as "just a student" that needs to memorize or "learn" things from them. :<_<:
