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.

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.

Ranting...and a few questions.

So,
she wanted us to take our vocabulary booklet with us a few days ago. I don't have any, and I don't feel like writing pages of useless shit, so I didn't have one with me...I can't take something with me that doesn't exist. I told her that I won't do anything useless IN MY FREE TIME, because it's my free time and I will do what I want there. She was "OMG EQUAL RIGHTS FOR EVERY STUDENT SO YOU HAVE TO DO IT TOO!!!". I have a fucking straight 2 in English, and I could easily turn it into a 1. But no, that useless shitty grade system doesn't matter, because others are worse than me I should do their work too? I don't think so. She then was like "Yeah, you won't be punished if you at least deliver me a approach of a vocabulary booklet". I refused, ofc, even though this could be a chance, but I won't lay of my core principals down of only working when it's really needed, and then to do it effective. Something school hasn't taught me btw.
Today she then got the great idea of giving everybody a grade 6 if they don't bring their vocabulary booklet. She is basically trying to destroy my grades, now I have to put up with it in stupid test and stuff.

Why are they allowed to do this?
Why are they allowed to destroy a students life because he said no?
Isn't it goal for a democracy to let people choose what they want to do?
Isn't it goal for the same to teach people saying no when they don't agree with something?
What is the difference between a dictatorship and school? (My principal always says it's "democratic", but from some letters going around in school (from principal to students) there it stands in black and white: "Your opinion doesn't matter shit" )
and
HOW CAN THIS BE JUSTIFIED?

Also, she wants me to come to detention (I might have mentioned that earlier)...I will, but the only thing she'll get there is a students that pisses her off with logical arguments until she runs out the room, hopefully bursting in tears, or, the times up.
Do they think it won't have consequences?
Do they think all students fear them?
How can somebody be so pathetic, to use force upon children, just to get your satisfaction...?

Well, I'll update this the following days, just to see how it turns out. I think I won't pay attention to her lessons any longer as well, then piss her off on the tests by being fucking good. Just to show her that I don't fucking need her, or her help, I have never asked, and I never will.
I think she will be to stubborn to get it...but no sacrifice, no victory.

RE: Ranting...and a few questions.

I tell ya, if you have a chance, drop outta school and EDUCATE YOURSELF! I got lots of books about investing to read, but no... Games and school steal my time, first I enjoy to a degree, second.. fuck it.

School has never teached me anything I couldn't have learned by myself.

RE: Ranting...and a few questions.

No point in dropping out now. It's a mere 100 days. I'll endure it.
Although I might have considered that a few years ago.

I taught me the most I know myself, school slowed the process, by injecting useless junk in my brain.

WOW! I just calculated it is a mere of ~70 school days for me. Puh. Stupid teacher gave me a "Verweis" ( a stupid piece of paper, mostly the whole story is only written one sided, fucking subjective, saying you did something to piss off the teachers). Don't have it yet...but I will get it. I'll read through the whole story, how she wrote it, and see if it insults me in any possible way. If it does, I won't accept it until it's correct. Also, she can fucking wait. If she makes pressure, I'll assure her, she'll get it even later.
This will take some fucking guts. And it will cost nerves...whatever, I am going to report in how it turns out - either way.

RE: Ranting...and a few questions.

As promised, the stuff I wrote as answer. It's ok if you are unable to decipher my hand writing, it's gonna be uploaded as pure text later. You may now flame me. Also includes the answer of the teacher. Yes, I will do that guided writing, but also, I'll answer her reasoning.

Hidden stuff:
