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.

Re: Anti-School Activist Group Chat

Sunday April 17, 2011 - Activist Meeting Chat Summary.


This meeting spanned about 2 hours.

============================================
>> First we discussed the name of the organization. Multiple ideas were thrown around, and as far as I could tell, the majority of us liked "The Educational Freedom Organization". Some of us, however, thought that we shouldn't have "organization" in the name for various reasons. We did not come to a consensus on the name yet, but we are getting there.

============================================
>> Next we discussed the groups mission statement and philosophy. I believe we agreed on some of these:
Quote:Philosophy: "The individual should be the final arbiter of their own education."

and

The goal of education is to transform the completely dependent baby into a largely independent adult who can navigate the physical and social world and achieve their own goals while respecting other people.

============================================
>> Next we discussed the website. It was unanimously agreed upon that it would be better to have a separate website from SS. - We also discussed how it should be set up. We decided that it should have some sort of guestbook. We also decided that sometime in the future when we have more members; implementing a system where people who are close to eachother can contact eachother, and we can identify areas where there's strong support would be a good idea. We also discussed creating regional divisions when we get enough members. Another idea that was thrown out was the idea of doing "joint operations" with NYRA once we establish ourselves.

============================================
>> We discussed long, and short term goals. It was agreed upon that our long term goal would be to create non-compulsory super-community-centers where people of any age can go and have access to classes, computers, books, sports, or other learning/physical activities. In order to accomplish this, we all agreed on some short term goals. Some of these short term goals included:

- First and foremost, spreading the word. Spreading discontent within the schooling system and set up logical, sane arguments as to why it's not the best system. Also, give our idea of how to improve it.

- Set up a comprehensive "How you can help" page on the new site.

- Slowly increasing freedoms in schools through walkouts, sit-ins, protests, and the like until they themselves become community centers.

- Expanding existing community-centers to become more learning oriented and better funded.

Actually, we briefly discussed cereal halfway through.

On a related note, Fleury Flakes > Frosted Flakes.

Re: Anti-School Activist Group Chat

All in all a good first meeting, there is still quite a bit to discuss, but we got a lot of our ideas and thoughts across to each other and we have some pretty decent methods I think.

....add me, please.

Calra Franklin is possibly a whore. She does need to fuck off, though. I don't sue Facebook when someone insults me on Facebook.

You are free to do as you are told.

"You are free to say what you want, as long as it doesn't offend anyone." Me

Dear Society,
Don't like gay marriage? Don't get one. Don't like abortions? Don't get one. Don't like drugs? Don't do them. Don't like sex? Don't have it. Don't like your rights taken away? Don't take away anyone else's.
Sincerely, be glad we're all different.

If anyone wants to be my penpal or something like that or just wants to talk hit me up.

Re: Anti-School Activist Group Chat

What you have listed as the mission statement is actually another part of the philosophy.

The mission statement would be something along the lines of, "Our goal is to make every educational opportunity available to every person and always optional.". The mission statement has to actually include a literal goal.

Life is good. Jeta është e mirë. Goingcrazy
Die lewe is goed.
Het leven is goed.

Zoidberg: What is it, already? What's the cause of your anger?
Leela: I guess I would have to say, I hate you!

Some epic ideas you guys got there. Sorry I didn't make it to the chat... I can't remember what I was doing at the time but I'm sure it probably wasn't very important. Razz

Seperate site is a good idea... this one has a bit of a bad reputation it seems. Wouldn't want that getting in the way. With that said, I am willing to host the site and pay for the domain if any of that is necessary. Either that or just donate moneys to someone else who wants to handle it personally. Whatever. Razz

Would Monday suit everyone better? I'm assuming most of us won't have school then. Whenever we can get the MOST people, the better.
