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.

I still don't get this really.

Is it where you do the curriculum on your own or are they just disregarding it altogether and letting students skip out on classes? The way you're describing it sounds sorta irresponsible, not the best opportunity. But I could be interperting you wrong.

Damn right,but most teachers would tell you that education is our pay,well most of the education we learn is bullshit we will never use in life.like who gives a damn if george washington was the first president,its done and over. It should be optional to learn petty stuff like that,cause im not planning on being a president or something

I can't help but be saddened, reading some of the things you guys post.

I have a problem with the system but not education. Asking to get paid for school is just weak. If you really want to act on that, drop out of school, get a job, and support yourself. As far as the stuff they teach you not mattering because it isn't applicable. Well that's bullshit. If you don't need to take algebra then you might as well not take physics or chemistry or anything. We'll all just grow up and not make any advancements because there was no point in teaching us the basics.

I'm sorry, I happen to like intelligent anti-school arguments but just flat-out complaining about it isn't going to do anyone any good.

I wasn't referring to which was most catoring to you. I was trying to point out the reasonable options. Get a job and do something worth getting paid for or just shut up and stay in school. Complaining does little good if it isn't followed up with action.

The deal with school is that you aren't producing anything. Your homework is uselss. It is busy-work, it is scraps of paper thrown together to show a mastery of skill or knowledge that you were supposed to gain from the class. There's no product to sell, there's no profit to make. It can hardly be considered a job and you can hardly make an argument why you should profit off of it. People never complain about how they should get paid for taking basketball lessons or any other course that actually interests them. In fact, they usually pay for it in some form of another. School isn't any different. It isn't a job.

It's why I'm so frusterated with it. It's busy-work, there's no useful end product that is tangible. You gain knowledge sure, but I felt I was gaining it at a rate slower than if I were to just live life and read my own books. It's why I dropped out and got a fucking job, and did the homeschool program. Minimial work but they still get samples to know I've mastered my learning requirements. It makes the most sense to me.

Don't get me wrong, I have a fair share of complaints about school. But this just seems unreasonable to me.

our schools can barely afford to exist. why would they ever give students money? happy camper is right, there's no logical reason why you should be paid for school. we just want to be able to leave if we want to.

Prisoners don't get paid. In fact, they or their families usually have to pay some sort of fee.

They'd probably fine you and if you couldn't pay they would probably fine your family. Courts would be involved and it'd be pretty hard to get out of.
