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.

Teacher sets self on fire infront of students.

lol.

http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/art...4b4367.801

BEZIERS, France — A French maths teacher who doused herself in petrol and set herself on fire in front of terrified pupils died of her injuries on Friday, police and a hospital source said.

The 44-year-old was hospitalised on Thursday after walking into the playground of a high school in the southern city of Beziers with a jerry can of fuel and starting a blaze that left her with third-degree burns.

She staggered across the yard in front of her horrified students, some of whom joined teachers in rushing to her aid.

She was taken by helicopter to a specialist burns unit at the university teaching hospital in nearby Montpellier, but doctors could not save her.

"(The teacher) had third-degree burns over 95 percent of her body," a hospital source told AFP. "With these burns there was no way she could have survived."

Parents and pupils who spoke to AFP at the scene Thursday said the teacher had a difficult relationship with several pupils in her maths class and that a meeting with them to clear the air on Wednesday had become rowdy.

On Friday morning, her colleagues staged a small protest outside the school in "solidarity" with their colleague, whom they identified as "Lise".

"Her gesture calls on all staff to show their solidarity and underlines the difficulty we have in carrying out our duties. We expect the authorities to act responsibly," the teachers said in a statement, brandishing signs reading "Never Again".

After news of her death emerged, one of the teachers, Christophe Quittet, said a silent march would be held in her memory departing Monday afternoon from the school.

A psychological crisis cell was treating shocked students at the Jean Moulin secondary school, a sprawling establishment with more than 3,000 students and 280 teachers.

Top local education official Christian Philip said the school had reopened its doors on Friday morning for those seeking to talk about the tragedy but that all classes remained suspended until at least Monday.

Traumatised students were being assisted by a psychological crisis cell, he said, and about 80 students had already been treated. The cell was to stay in place until at least Tuesday.

In a joint statement, unions representing secondary school teachers said the incident underscored the hardships facing teachers and called for a public debate on working conditions.

Noting the "significance of the choice of the workplace to commit this desperate act," the unions called on Education Minister Luc Chatel to organise public consultations on "the realities" of teaching work.

"We must be aware of what is being called teachers' fatigue, professional problems, of the suffering at work that, while we see it in other professions, is more and more present within the education system," the unions said.

Local prosecutor Patrick Mathe said an initial investigation had found "no criminal act" connected with the incident.

Well... That's an... Interesting way to go.

What a cunt, to do that in front of her students though.

Although, I -had- heard that French teachers were hot.

Awol your getting soft.
Lmao I wish somebody had recorded this but in her own way she made sure her memory would never be forgotten by the few who saw her blazing march of glory no matter how hard they try.
I hope that one day its one of the ways I go out.

I like kids. They're still malleable. Still have potential.

I only said it so others might be able to study her shining example of the burning march. Sure there are other videos on ync of people being burned alive but there isn't one of a mid aged teacher with no hope or fear lighting herself ablaze like a living pile of kinder.

I wonder what they're gonna do with her giant balls made of marble?

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

Who the fuck commits suicide by setting themselves on fire?

Great way to go.

But the best way to actually commit suicide is a heroin overdose because you feel a wave of ectasy beforhand. I would buy a shitload of drugs and just OD

I don't know whether to feel sorry for that person or the students.
Eh fuck it. If my math teacher put himself on fire I'd laugh.
