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.

When Teachers Interrupt Students

People think it's bad when students interrupt teachers, right? But what do people think when teachers interrupt students? Isn't that equally as bad?

My group in English class made me represent them by answering a question. So I answered the question, and in the middle of my sentence the teacher interrupts me to correct my grammar or something. Since I was talking, I only heard a portion of what she said, so I asked, "Can you repeat that? I didn't hear you."
"You never hear me," she replies. And the whole class laughs.
Then, embarrassed and flustered, I lose my train of thought, and want to continue answering the question, but I totally forget what I was about to say and respond with some bullshit in an attempt to recollect my memory. Then the teacher cuts me off again and skips me to go to the next person.

God damn. Why can't the teacher listen to what the student has to say for once? Why does she have to ridicule me in front of the entire class? And this is not the first time she's done something like this. I feel afraid and vulnerable whenever I'm in her classroom. Sometimes it's teachers like this that make students go off edge.

Anyway, yeah, that's my first rant on this forum. Expect more to come... :/

RE: When Teachers Interrupt Students

I agree man. Also teachers are stupid authoritarian assholes.
Another stupid thing is when you walk in 10 seconds late, apparently you're interrupting the whole class. But no bitch, you're lecture is disrupting the class.
But it's okay for teachers to interrupt you because they don't care or are too ignorant to understand it from the students point of view. Seriously, fuck them.

RE: When Teachers Interrupt Students

My old math teacher used to interrupt EVERYONE.

I hated when she interrupted the entire class with her damn lectures too.
My infamous chemistry teacher also likes to interrupt you when giving lectures. First he talks on and on without letting you get a single word in; If you try and talk he just keeps talking. Then when you try and say something in your defense, he interrupts you as if he's trying to stop you from defending yourself. What an asshat.

Oh god this isn't just in the school system. Adults can interrupt, walk all over, and crush the thoughts of a child and people will often cheer! God forbid a child try to defend themselves. Then it becomes "talking back".

RE: When Teachers Interrupt Students

I know that feeling. Always ironic how teachers can go on about students respecting them, and somehow feel like they don't have to give them any in return whatsoever.

Precisely, this often happens, and the child often does not have a good response ready, leading to more embarassement.

This was exactly how I felt at that moment. Then again, I usually can't come up with good comebacks. :/[/quote]
