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.

RE: "You're going to work at Mc--" *SLAP*

My teacher(class teacher or w/e) called my mother today.
She[teacher] doesn't like that I from "top student" dropped to "an average Joe with no future".
Then she talked to me about my future plans, I somewhy told her that I gon move to England and find a work.
Then she started counting jobs: won't get accepted as builder, probably a babysitter.
Bitch please, self employed(didn't say that)
Then she mentioned that mum said that I wanna open a business, then she asked what kind of?
I replied with dunno, because it depends if I'll move to England or another country and on situation, what a dumbass...
Then she proceeded telling me how I won't succeed and won't be needed(as employe and employer aka business) with basic education, well fuck you too, you finished university and now you are a fucking teacher, your argument is invalid.

Ofc I didn't say anything but IDK and some other shit, because I just can't talk at all to people I don't like or know <_>...

There's nothing wrong with someone working at mcdonalds if they want to.

And why do people always act like you're hurting them personally by not going to school?

I've seen so much shit done to youth and for some reason, this has made me angrier than I've felt in years. Abuse and oppression happens all over the world. It's a terrible reality of modern society, but we've all accepted that it happens and we're doing what we can to fight it and build a better world.
But this...this mindless, condescending disrespect toward people who have no legal voice with which to defend themselves, this reduction of parents' betrayal into a cheap crack about kids being computer-savvy...it's like watching a surgeon joke about life insurance while his patient bleeds to death on the operating table. The media's job is to protect society from oppression and they've drawn a clear line between the people worth protecting and the people that don't matter. How can they people sleep at night?

You're a journalist. DO. YOUR. FUCKING. JOB.

I have nothing to contribute to this thread other than that I saw the title and my first thought was, "'McSlappy's' Would be an awesome name for a strip club or hooters type restaurant."

Man.. Don't even bother to converse with the dipshits on facebook. Not worth your time. A lot of people who don't have an ounce of independent thought LIVE on that website. And they LIVE in your school, too. It's best to just not even bother. If that kid honestly thinks that disliking school immediately means MC DONALDS!!!!!!!! they're a moron- And Mc Donalds might possibly be in THEIR future instead!!
