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.

*remembers doing topics like this over and over and tries to put it politely* I hate school because its a prison that tries to brainwash us into not questioning those society deems over us and it tries to tell us whats good for us.

you know what? (no offence to religous people this is my opinion)

I think the world would be a better place to be without religion.

We wouldnt have aussuma bin laden trying to kill us all saying our death is the will of the gods and all that rubbish

In my opinion religion is something people need: e.g. If i be good I go to heaven

so I stole your good luck stick charm ey? Why dont you just sue me??????

Even without religion people will just find a different excuse to start wars, the only reason people think religion starts wars, is because religion is very important to cultures and power hungry leaders have been exploiting that fact for centuries. But if there was no religion, they would just find a different reason, wars have gone on forever and always will, humans are too sinful of a species to not kill each other in pointless wars. Oh and welcome, I'm sure you'll fit in great! Biggrin And I hate school because its a retarted waste of time, most of the things they teach us are useless, and they force me to go, I really hate being forced to do things.

Wanna know my two beefs with school?

You subsidize the schools, but you fail to subsidize the children. What this leads to is corrupt bureaucrats taking most of the money home while the teachers and students who need the tools for education in the dust. It's not a matter of more funding, its a matter of who you're going to fund, and to think after hundreds of years of being fucked in the ass that the government is going to suddenly take the money and use it wisely is fantasy land nonsense.

My other problem: It's all involuntary. You think if 90% of kids went to school anyways before involuntary school hours enforced on children that voluntary schooling is A-OK. Apparently not, and the fact that only two canidates would think the idea of voluntary school is a good thing pisses me off.

My beef is that it isn't voluntary and that is counter-freedom. IT'S AGAINST THE AMERICAN WAY! Ranting

So anyway, yeah, they could make schools "better" and crud, but they need to make them voluntary first.

I would just tell him to fuck off and ignore him, after awhile of not getting a response, he'd probably get bored and leave. Then again, I have a high tolerance for ignoring retards.

Besides that it destroys your mind and soul, it's a waste of money and it's bad for our economy. If we turned the building into a library with low maintenance and staffing costs, it would offer a better and more diverse education than the regular school. Also, a school building costs a lot of money, millions of dollars, and that value drops into the negatives as the school wastes the time of thousands of students who pass through the door. In the meantime, the average US school spends 8.7k per student a year and we're left wondering where that money is going. If they paid me 8.7k a year--well, I'd be much further ahead then I am now.

People assume young people are unmotivated and can't be successful or productive citizens without school. They forget that intelligence and craving for knowledge is how the human race has survived all this time. We have no other special talents. School IS the reason a lot of young people are unmotivated failures. When a lot of time and effort equates to comparatively little reward, as it does in schools, procrastination and laziness should be expected.

The only death is ignorance.
