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.

10 Reasons Why The School System Is Fucked

1. Being forced to do something you hate is fucking terrible. Can anyone honestly say that they think school is a fun place? Nope.
2. The students have no voice. When you disagree with a teacher and give them a good reason why, they just say, "You're too young to know the truth." That's bullshit! Age shouldn't matter!
3. Most of the shit they teach you is useless. Can you honestly admit that you use the Pythagorean Theorem in everyday life? No.
4. The teachers are too old to understand the students. All of my teachers are at least 40. That's twenty-seven years older than me! How can they know how my mind works?
5. "Everyone else sucks up and eats my shit, so why can't you?" Well, shit-for-brains, people are supposed to be different. Ever heard of a thing called individuality? If everyone did the same thing, the world would suck.
6. If you get F's and D's, you're a fucking dipshit, right? WRONG! Just because someone doesn't get a 4.12 Grade Point Average and participate in Super-Ultra-AP-Advanced courses doesn't mean they're dumb. They just don't like the work, which is perfectly reasonable. Maybe you're just too smart for your own good? Maybe you can't concentrate due to a lack of sleep? There are different types of intelligence.
7. Most kids are assholes. They are all just the fucking same. Products. They should have bar codes on the backs of their necks.
8. Teachers can bend the rules just to piss you off. That smells shittier than a fat fucking retarded fucking HIV-positive Swedish dwarf girl who rolls around in elephant shit and throws feces at people who stare at her because she acts more retarded than Forrest Gump.
9. They brainwash the kids. A kid who never questions their authorities and always gets 100% is not smart. They're brainwashed.
10. People need to learn and live the way they want to do it, not they way a balding fuckwitted 47 year old wants them to.

Yep, they say that 'qualifications are what matter'. We spent nearly all of last year learning, basically, how to do a test. Not useful things that will be used in later life, just what gets you marks on tests and what doesn't. It's worst in English, which is meant to be imaginative, but the strictness of what gets you top-grade marks leaves no room for imagination...

And I have... 2 good teachers. My Science teacher (Who is so cool), and my History teacher. All the other 20 or so teachers I have are complete twats who need to go learn the definition of respect. They're always on about respect, but respect means:

A mutual feeling of trust and admiration.

NOT: Sit down, do what you're fucking told, and don't question me or you get detention.

I liked it until 6th where they removed all the fun and imagination.

10 Reasons Why The School System Is Fucked

Quote:4. The teachers are too old to understand the students. All of my teachers are at least 40. That's twenty-seven years older than me! How can they know how my mind works?

I can't really agree with the number 4. Here's why:

I have an art teacher who's 57 (she's 43 years older than me) and we get along very well. In fact, she's one of my favourite teachers. Sometimes she even lets students use their mobile phones. And last year she gave me a gift for the last day of school. I had her for three years already. Smile She's great.

This is an ageist statement. Laugh

It all depends on whether they remember what it's like to be a kid or not, and on how they experienced it back when they were there. Also, technically, nobody but you can know how your mind works.

Also, lol, I'm 34. One day I'll be 40 and then this statement will apply to me. Wouldn't that be amusing.
