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.

Urgent Email needed for Romanian Homeschoolers

I got this from the Home School Legal Defense Association mailing list:

Quote:Homeschooling is not legal in Romania, even though the homeschool movement is steadily growing. Home School Legal Defense Association has been working with Gabriel Curcubet, president of the Romanian Home Schooling Association, in order to convince the Romanian government to specifically recognize and legalize homeschooling.

For now, we have achieved a way for homeschooling to exist, but this solution is only temporary. A recent change in Romania's leadership has given an opportunity for homeschooling to become legal.

The Romanian homeschoolers have requested that homeschoolers from America and around the world email the members of the two education committees in Parliament immediately. The new Ministry of Education wants to review the Education Law projects and to complete this national education law in November. Therefore, time is of the essence.


Will you please take a moment and send an email to help our brothers and sisters in Romania enjoy the freedom we have in America?

ACTION REQUESTED

Please send an email which states:

"Honorable member of the Committee for Education, Science, Youth, and Sport:

"We respectfully urge you to consider the petition of the Romanian Home Schooling Association regarding homeschooling. We ask you to include homeschooling in the new educational law as they recommend."

Also include a paragraph about the social and academic success of homeschooling in your family.

To email the members of these Committees, please go to http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=4527 ; this webpage will enable you to write one email which will then be sent to all the members of the Education Committee of both the Chamber of the Deputies and the Senate.

By sending this one email through our website, 35 members of parliament will receive your individual message from your email address.

You can send your email through November 28, 2007.

Thank you very much for taking a few moments to make a difference for the homeschoolers in Romania.

Sincerely,

Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

An update:

Quote:Thank you for your emails to the Committee Members of the Committees
for Education, Science, Youth, and Sport. As a result of your
diligence, each committee member received over 2000 emails, urging
them to legalize homeschooling and to adopt the amendments of the
Romanian Home School Association.

The Romanian homeschoolers are excited about the support and hopeful
that the international outcry will enable them to have the legal right
to homeschool in Romania through this new federal law.

Therefore, you can stop emailing these members of the Romanian
Parliament at this time. Their email boxes are quite full!

We will notify you in the future if there is any need to continue
contacting these Committee Members, but we think this will be
sufficient.

Gabriel Curcubet, president of the Romanian Home Schooling
Association, was able to obtain the email addresses of two
undersecretaries of state. He believes it would be advantageous to
their cause to send an email, or a copy of the email you sent to the
Committee Members, to them.

You can say:
Honorable Undersecretary of State,

"We respectfully urge you to consider the petition of the Romanian
Home Schooling Association regarding home schooling. We ask you to
include home schooling in the new educational law."

You can also include a paragraph about the social and academic success
of your homeschool.

Zvetlana Preoteasa, Undersecretary of State for K-12 Education:
zvetlana.preoteasa@min.edu.ro
Gabriella Pasztor, Undersecretary of State for communication with
Parliament: pasztor@mec.edu.ro

Thank you, once again, for your response in helping these brothers and
sisters in Romania as they work for their freedom to homeschool.

Sincerely,
Christopher J. Klicka

Re: Urgent Email needed for Romanian Homeschoolers

So? Anything new?


I'd homeschool, but my parents never finished highschool, and they're always at work.

Let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass.

Try unschooling, where you teach yourself.

Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.

Uhm,no. Because from what I've read and found on the net, homeschooling is still not an alternative. Plus, my mother feels that all I want to do in my life is stay on the internet, so she thinks that a nice,coercive,mean,uncaring teacher would be perfect for my education Smile

The slut.
