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.

Hey!

Hey!
After a really boring day of school, I started thinking about how meaningless it really is. You go through middle school for high school. High school for college. College for "a successful job". But in the end, you can succeed after skipping a few steps...

So after googling "I hate school", I found this magnificent site. So, now I'm saying: "Hello!"

I'm Revofev.

So, any tips/hints about this forum?

Re: Hey!

Why hello there, welcome Smile

School is there for the mass produce of robots to fall in line, be obediant and get a job to keep the system going. Remember success differentiats between people.

Don't feed the forum trolls and leave your sanity at the door... you won't be needing it Razz

Re: Hey!

Wonderland is it?

It's not quite a utopia like Carol's book, but she doesn't know what its like on the hook. Your being reeled in, because you did now just nibble shall we begin the fun without the unneded quibble.

Okay it's just a forum, but better than the latter, my name is Sir Vatman and I'll be your hatter. Despite anarchist tone and provided survival kit..This hat is just for you and its a perfect fit.
