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.

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.

In some places, homicide.

Well, here's a few off the top off my head:

*Making things that should be fun incredibly boring

*Taking an obscene amount of time from the prisoner/students

*Making people with lower grades feel inferior

*Offering almost none/no alternatives

*Offering VERY FEW choices

ethnocide: Destruction of a culture School has killed cultures because they enforce dress codes and don't allow music to by played. Also, they promote conformity which many cultures are opposed to.

liberticide : Destruction of liberty School does not allow much freedom, and certainly not liberty.


biocide : Destruction of life School has ruined, or destroyed, many lives.

menticide : Killing the mind (brainwashing) I don't think I need to elaborate on this one.

facticide: Killing facts (distorting the truth) School distorts the truth about learning, and it often distorts history.

that would be cool, also, it could be made into a poster, and hung up. ppl like learning new words, it might acually have an effect. people seem to pay more attention to, or believe things when it sounds scientific.

Make sure you have actual statistics to back it up. I'm fairly sure most teen suicides are caused by the social influences that correspond with going to school, but would take place even if school didn't exist anyway.

For you guys ragging on Nigel: stop. Those are all real words. Go look them up, and educate yourself before you start to criticize others. Rawr.

You forgot legicide, Nigel. Schools infringe upon a person's constitutional right to freedom of speech in America, among other things.
