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.

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.

It creates unnecessary stress. You worry constantly over grades, hypocritical teachers and parents who will shout at you for low grades, not doing homework and the whatnot.

Agreed wholeheartedly 100%. If it were more known and acknowledged, people would not only be more open to not making their kids go to school, but also wouldn't look down on "dropouts".

I also agree with what VampyrMagick said. Maybe you'd like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summerhill_School

Re: Why don't you like school?

I hate the stereotyping of pupils, the nonsympathy of some teachers, and the general forced rules.. I find it wearisome that for at least eleven years, 80% of my days are exactly the same. What a waste of energy. And, to get the job I want so much, it would help if I went to university, got a degree. I don't want to be one of those people who hates their job.

Re: Why don't you like school?

I hate school because the kids have no voice, no control. The teachers can do whatever the **** they want and get away with it. Another thing is that the work I get is insulting to my intelligence. I just hate anything that forces you to do something against your will. Oh, and one more thing, I'm exponentially smarter than my teachers will be. I could teach myself. I'm only thirteen and I want out.

RE: Why don't you like school?

Seriously, OP. I have something for you: http://www.summerhillschool.co.uk/. A.S. Neill found that they children eventually come to formal lessons because they're bored. Furthermore, when they did, everyone could concentrate because no-one had to come. Freedom, not license. You'd be surprised what happens when you trust children.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.

"The student council at my school doesn't do anything"

Umm.....that's exactly the problem.

I do not hate school. I love school. I just hate my classmates and my current English teacher, but everything else at my school is good.

RE: Why don't you like school?

I don't like school because is it only preaches mediocrity and stereotypes on life. It certainly would not make you rich and successful. Like: you should do this to find a job. The problem is, all the jobs are just ways to sustain your life, making sure that you don't die of hunger and exposure. The so called wage difference only slightly determines your lifestyle. With so called "high paying" jobs giving you slightly better house/car then the others. Schools needs to teach people about investment and entrepreneurship. That way, people can truly have the wealth and power to change the world.

RE: Why don't you like school?

I have multiple reasons, but the main reason my hatred for school is so great is the fact that we have no say in it at all. I'm tired of the "One size fits all" way of doing things. The education system is in dire need of revamping, and most people are too lazy to get off their fat asses, and try and do something about it. I grew up in a school district that was ran by people who care more about the money than the kids.
Most of my teachers were great people, the rest where abusive of power, and perverted. I will also state the other reasons.

The public education system has no mercy for anyone. My school charged $1.25 - $2.00 for water, and the water fountains would spew out brown liquid most of the time. The food, oh dear god, the food. Prices higher than Donald Trump on a Friday night, and for food that is the cooked equivalency to pig slop.

Compulsory/Forced education, that were not gonna use 90% of. Must i say more?

The hypocrisy, dear god. We get to learn about how America is the "greatest" country in the world, and that there is "freedom for all" there. Yeah right, we have the highest prison population. And your cooped up in a building full of idiots, who have no idea how to even blink.

You get punished for civil disobedience, even though they encourage to make a change.

It's basically a factory made to make parts for the badly-made machine we call Society.

The education system will fall one day. And i will be laughing during every fucking minute of it Popcorn

When you have to answer to the student council, you can say we have a voice.

In fact, we have more at stake than you, because we can basically just lose our jobs. A lot teachers won't admit it, but they do what they do because they need a job.
That's true to an extent. If we don't go to school we get a nice criminal record of truancy.

I personally think the two biggest things wrong with school are that it is coercive by nature, forcing children to go, and that it is public and "free". Anything supported by tax dollars is supported by government sanctioned theft, which is what taxes are.

Why don't you like school?

Because I have no freedom. Because I'm forced to do shit I don't want to and I get screamed at and punished if I don't things that make me miserable and bored completely. Because there is no freedom of thought, because they tell you what is good and what is bad; they treat children like dogs or circus animals to be trained and shaped into what society deems fit. Which is horrible. It destroys individuality, free thought, and society is crooked as fuck.

Also, teachers are complete assholes, and I'm forced to be there 8 hours a day. And school discourages me from my dreams and ambitions, turns them into academic exercises which are boring, redundant, and destructive to art and humanity.

Those are the ones that stand out. There are some more like homework, corruption, etc., etc.

"A good artist should be isolated. If he isn't isolated, something is wrong." - Orson Welles.
