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.

I agree.

One of the only reasons I put up with school crap anymore, is that if I get thru it, I'll finally get to Friday.

I mean its just not worth it - suicide that is.
There's too much fun to be had, if you know how to have it.
Ok I hate school. I hate the people, but I'm slowly learning how to have fun with them, pranks, propaganda... also I've learned how to laugh at them.

No

but its not just about us. i don't know about you, but i don't want my kids to grow up like this either. and with some of these anti-homeschooling laws being passed you never know what might happen by then. don't just wait around, do something. or at least speak out against it once you're old enough to be considered human. remember we're not the only generation who's going to suffer because of this.

I think Buenaventura Durruti is a pretty cool guy. eh kills fascists and doesnt afraid of ruins.

but by then it may not be our choice any more. if enough people home/unschool that it's hurting their power base, they're not just going to sit back and let it continue.

However Consider the private schools take advantage of this situation and change there style to suit us more and not charge so much these schools would thrive leaving no room for the bad state schools that seem to be causing the problem

to be honest, i'd rather not have anyone with control over what my kids learn but them. and that includes relgions and private institutions as well. instead of just switching masters lets get rid of them completely.

well hey, if it weren't for the whole crucification thing i'd want to be Jesus too. who wouldn't?
but yeah, i'm an atheist and i agree. but people have the right to practice whatever religon they want, that's fine. what's not fine is parents making that decision for their kids. they can build private schools if they want, we just need them to make it voluntary so that parents can't force their kids to go.

as for the state schools, that's a whole different issue. schools are the basis of their power, they're what makes the new generation part of their society. and they will not give that up without a fight. what should be done about it is a topic of great debate here, so if you have any good ideas go ahead and post em'.

well, if it's a private school then its just that-a PRIVATE school. and they can say or teach whatever they want on their property. what's bad is kids getting forced or manipulated to go there even if they don't want to.
