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.

school newspapers unite

hi i found out about your website a couple days ago because i am makeing a school newspaper (for the first day of school) and i was looking at my student rights and stumbled over it. this is an amazing website with amazing people (all accept that nazi guy). i regerstered but have not got my acount email yet so i will post this as guest.(my name is colin) i have not read all the forms yet so forgive me if someone sugested this already.

WHY DONT WE UNITE THE SCHOOL NEWS PAPERS. we can keep in contact through email and aim. i am on summer vacation right now and i dont have a computer but i can get online from the public library. we can share ideas and make nation wide walkouts etc. tell me what u think?

that's an excellent idea. i've been wanting to make a forum or some kind of section for all the various underground papers, but really haven't been able to find more than 2 or 3 that aren't dead Razz

i can make a "school newspaper" forum for that right now, if people would use it? ah what the hell i'll make one anyway, can't hurt :biggrin:

soul riser i already posted this in faceless but it said guest dont know why, but here it is again with some new ideas
"hehe, cool.I don't think anyone really read many issues cos I haven't got any emails. The people at my school are so stupid, they probably didn't understand it anyway! I think I'm gonna make some more propaganda and post it around."
never think that america (or students of american schools) are stupid. you dont beleive me just look at sports shows with all there statistics. sure americans are ignorant but there brain still works. what we need to do is find rules that all students hate. for instance at my old school there was ssr (silent sustained reading) and almost 90 percent of my classroom didnt read. so it was a waste of time. if there is a program at my high school like it i will fight that first. my plan is to replace ssr with an recess like program where students can exercise or just hang out. my reason to the administration will be that obestity is taking the youth and we need to get rid of things that just wastes peoples time. i think that people will respondto this and this will lead to more social protests. like legalizing weed or stopping the war in iraq

also make isses fun write stuff like the principal is a witch and looking in her in the eyes could turn you to stone. and write a whole article of something you could do if a friend of yours gets turned into stone.and when student council elections come up write articles telling kids to run with platforms such as free condoms distributed to the library, etc.
oh and if your 18 you can run for school board with your platform being if you get elected to fire the princibal and vice princeibal (your get the vote of every 18- 25 year old) and hopefully the adults will split the vote
