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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Im in deep shit

Mwahaha i've done it,im getting out of school. But it wont be easy,i dont know if this is everywhere,but you cant drop out until your 18 years of age,i think thats bullshit. So i went to school today,and after 3rd period i just left Evil walked all the way home and told my parents what was going down.i told them im not going back no matter what they do,NO MATTER WHAT.I think i should have the right to drop out of school if i wanted too,but they took that too.My mother said that the constituiton isnt in effect for me until im 18,and shes also going to go to my school tommorow and rat me out.My fathers got my back though,so if i dont come in for awhile and respond to stuff,im probably a little occupied.But,i do thankyou soulriser and friends for helping me out when i had no where else to turn. Suspicious i assume veryone here has my back?

i've been looking into things,to see what they could and couldn't do,so if they tried tp pull some stunt,id know whether or not they could. I live in virginia,and this place is insane.I said earlier that every year recently,they keep changing the high school times.One time we had to stay later and be there earlier than the middle school kids.

I do not have your back; if you drop out of school, you will lose all your friends, become a drug addict and die lonely and pennyless.




Anyway, can you explain how you were able to tell your parents this confidently? You probably didn't feel totally comfortable telling them, but I never thought I could tell my parents this.

That's because he didn't drop out. Like everyone else, he was too stupid to realize that cramming for examinations was important. He said that, "One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year."

He wrongly believed that the examinations were what deterred him from these scientific problems, but what really deterred him was his laziness and lack of negative incentives to work. Fortunately, he didn't just give up and drop out so he could write papers when he was 16. Even one of the smartest people ever didn't realize that modern schooling, which involves seemingly-useless activities, is necessary in the development of one's mind.

Only stupid people drop out of high school.

I'm not offended; I was wondering whether you had read the whole post.

If everyone's being stupid, you could just stay away from them. Or, if you can't get away from them, you could just read when you're around them.
