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.

Just pray. It works. It really does. I sent you a hymn. You should try it out. Lucifer sincerely loves you. Keep this in mind next time.

I actually already sold my soul to an unscrupulous used car salesman a while back, so Lucifer's gonna have to stand in line.

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.

Excluding the praying part, this is probably the most useful post you've made yet.

This is a stupid statement

Why?

It just seems like you should try to stick to one side. You should either try really hard to do well in school, to go through the option that is considered more normal.

You could say that public school doesn't give you the oppurtunities and the happiness you want and you should figure out why you believe these reasons. Then you should figure out how to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

Of course, it doesn't always work in a nice neat fashion like that, but that's the way it should be.

Rebelnerd:
Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

Anyways I did some calculations and found out that even if I get 100% on the final ill still fail the class. The final won't get my grade up enough. I fucked up by not trying to improve my grade sooner and now I'll fail the class.

/thread

Lol sorry Sharpie i called you a "she."

Im sorry about the grade, tho, just dont go to school again if you seriously dont want to. Dont let anyone force you to do so, i wouldnt. This school system's really fucked up anyway.

Really? You got a 62 in your class but there is no way you can pass? What's considered passing?

RE: Going to fail English now because of a dumbfuck

I PASSED ENGLISH

I got a 136/150 on my final essay, which put my grade at exactly 70% (The minimum required to pass)

I almost failed because I fucked up and was stupid about the class, and I'm not going to do the same shit next year. I may have passed but I still learned something from this whole experience and I won't fuck it up again next year.

Cool

At least I was eventually able to accept the fact that I was wrong, unlike a lot of people who complain about shit like this.
