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.

Kids/Teens don't matter

On my first day of school, we had this message on the intercom saying that our parents had to read and sign the planner for the school rules, but then this strikes me; students have to sign it too under the same terms than the parents.

Students are not relevant and don't matter at all, only the parents do? Cuckoo

We're being took in account as not being individuals

Re: Kids/Teens don't matter

we have to have a form signed restricting almost everything you do. your parents sign to different things than you though.

Hidden stuff:
"A 'no' uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble." - Mahatma Gandhi

"The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it."

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
-Ben Franklin

"when I was a kid I used to pray for a bicycle. then I realized that god doesn't work that way. so I stole one and prayed for forgiveness."
"I would rather die for something I believe in than live for anything else."
"What is the task of higher education? To make a man into a machine. What are the means employed? He is taught how to suffer being bored." – F W Nietzsche

Re: Kids/Teens don't matter

All of the 'contacts' we have to sign at my school must also be signed by the parents. That way, if the student is punished by the teacher whose contact that was they can say "OH! But you signed this, which clearly states I have the right to punish them this way for whatever it is they did!!!!" They can't get into trouble. And we signed saying we wouldn't break the rules, but did so another reason to punish!!

Not that all teachers in my school are that sadistic, but the contracts are just a way to protect themselves.

Men are born ignorant, not stupid; they are made stupid by education.
Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) English philosopher, mathematician and writer.

My posts are usually lengthy, and I can't help it much... Sorry.

And we are forced to sign that contract under duress =/

Re: Kids/Teens don't matter

Ugh, that is so true. Every one of my teachers always make you turn the contract in. If you don't turn it in, you lose points and even after all the points are gone then they call your parents. You cannot NOT turn it in.

Something wrong with that?

The only good signature is a dead signature.

Anything you sign as a minor isn't legally binding unless a parent or guardian signs it as well. However, some school stuff doesn't have your parent or guardian signs it, so you may exploit that as you wish.

well would you look at the time its time to gay
