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.

Teachers making examples out of newly recruited brainwashees or veterans of the force

Today during math class my teacher began lecturing our class about paying attention "DURING MY CLASS". I knew who she was targeting. (Me and a few of my friends) She started telling us about how much harder it gets "later in our schooling career" if we don't lea-- memorize it now. She then proceeded to point out a student that was a new recruit to the brainwashed people of our school. She told us about "Oh his grades were higher after we talked about it, right?" "Yeah my grade in this class went from I think a D to a high B" "SEE WHAT I MEAN? JUST LISTEN AND IT WILL BE EASIER!" A pretty good image of her unnecessary body movements -> Goingcrazy "[insert name] has been paying attention to my class the whole year and she has an A and it's easy, right?" "Yeah I do the same for all of my classes."

After I recognized that she was trying to use examples to make us at least attempt to try harder, it made me angry. She was using the mental terrorism that teachers tend to have to make me feel left out of their glorious school success stories, so I started to tune out of her crap and stared blankly ahead until she stopped talking.

It's funny that I knew what was going on, so it made me want to try even less. Silly teacher, mind tricks are for magicians Fu

The sad thing is she truly believes good grades in her class will help you succeed.

I laugh at my teacher when she starts talking because she starts spazing out and her flabs smack against each other

RE: Teachers making examples out of newly recruited brainwashees or veterans of the force

She called on me today when I OBVIOUSLY didn't know the answer. Didn't even raise my hand. I had to zone in to look up (#firstworldpains). ANY IDIOT could realize that I didn't have the answer. I seriously wanted to yell "Fuck you!" right in her face.

RE: Teachers making examples out of newly recruited brainwashees or veterans of the force

I'm getting tired of putting up with the same teacher's shit. One day she asked who doesn't care if they pass this class, I raised my hand. We had a mutual agreement for a while, don't fuck with me, I won't fuck your class up. So I slept...and now she's waking me up again. WHY? The class runs smoother when I'm sleeping instead of being bored and doing stupid shit. Every day she tells me to take out paper and something to write with, even though she knows damn well I'm not writing anything down. I usually pull out small slips of paper that are already covered with writing lol...but damn this teacher is annoying, it's just constant bitch fits and thinking what she has to say is more important than what we have to say.
And mike, I have to admit when I saw your name and profile picture, I assumed some pretty bad things about you. But you're quickly rising the ranks of my SS social ladder.

No, this is Patrick.

I know what you mean by the username. A ton of other riders I know are complete douches. I get it. My profile picture is with my sister (brunette) and her friend (blonde) before one of the Friday night HS football games. It always shoos haters away though.
