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.

Greetings from Holland

Greetings SS,

My name's Managaz, and I'm 13 years old. I live in Holland, which is a country where unschooling is a crime Rocket . I don't like school because it's interfering with my freedom, and because I really don't care about all those languages . I hate learning languages, because I think it's a personal decision to choose which language you want to learn and like Cuckoo . We learn French, German, Dutch, English, Latin and Greek here. I dislike all these languages, except English, which I like Nutter . For all the other lessons I get good marks, so no complains about that :<_<:
My interests are computers, games, films, music, Photoshop, video editing and many more things. Hope you understand my English, because I'm not very good at it Blush (still in progress).

Greetings, Managaz Yes

If the OP still posted, I'd ask if his school taught anything besides languages.

Nope, it's in the Netherlands. Right next to Germany, which explains their stance on unschooling.

Don't be silly 5, they don't have computers in Africa. In Africa they just starve themselves and play in the mud for fun or something.

If they didn't have computers in Africa, this site wouldn't exist.
