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.

Brazilian university students forced back into kindergarten

Quote: As bad as conditions are on the Guarulhos campus of the Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp), with its sweltering classrooms and improvised cafeteria, they're even worse at the kindergarten next door, where some of the university's approximately 3,000 students are now having to take classes.

The overcrowded Unifesp has been promising to construct a new building since 2007. So far, nothing's been built, forcing the overcrowded university --much to the chagrin of its students-- to begin using the classrooms of a nearby kindergarten.

"We are discussing Hegel while outside the classroom there are children goofing around during their break. We can't bear these classes anymore," says university student Michael de Santana, 27.

Guarulhos, where São Paulo's international airport is located, has about 1,300,000 residents.

Demanding better conditions, Unifesp students from the Guarulhos campus began protesting about two months ago. Last Friday they occupied the Academic Division. Now students at several others federal universities --which are maintained by the national government and are cost-free for students-- are threatening similar actions.

Students in Guarulhos say the on-campus classes are uncomfortable too. "In summer it gets extremely hot and there is no ventilation," says De Santana. Others complain that in order to make photocopies, they must wait in line for 40 minutes. The tiny cafeteria --which is housed in a wooden shed-- is also a source of frustration.

The school's academic director, Marcos Cezar de Freitas, insists the kindergarten "solution" will only be temporary. He says the long-promised new building will be moving forward now that the construction bidding process has finally been settled.


My city sure has good infraestructure.

There's a part of Brazil called Nordeste where it is almost desert and people look like sand niggers, just without camels and those hats.

RE: Brazilian university students forced back into kindergarten

That wouldn't bother me too much. I usually get along with kids, except for the bratty ones. Actually, I get along with them better than adults and people my own age.
