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.

Rainbow Teacher Bullies Suck, Yes?

Woah hey there. Feel free to just skip my rant and look at the bottom XP

Here to see if anyone knows this feeling: Being bullied my a teacher. Of course, in my case, it's the big shot guy, the 'assistant headmaster,' the one who fires and expels. He's like, the executioner of joy. He started to not like me when I missed three weeks of school in sixth grade and then blew the ninth grade class out of the water in the end of year testing (My school goes from 5-9). Now, it didn't stop there, oh no. He's been working at revenge for two years now. Eighth grade's rolled around, and I'm getting real tired of his bullshit. I'm the ideal student, and it's very hard to maintain that persona trust me. I'm not a goody smart kid on the inside, I'm doing it to get into a good high school, and hopefully a good college. This douchesack is ruining it all. He, obviously, has access to my records. He knows I was suffering from clinical depression. He knows they put me on prozac, and then they tried zoloft, and then my parents said no more anti depressants she's eleven. Yet, he still fucks with me. He comes into my classes and reads my homework out loud. He threatened to give me detention for doing homework during my free period (You get those in prep school). Thought he was kidding at first, he wasn't, but he took me off later. He separated me from my few friends by finally moving me out of the top class and into the second top class, which are technically the same, same work / level but it shows up on transcripts as '1b' instead of '1a'. He even placed us in separate clubs, and basically ensured that I was as isolated as possible. He does the sorting himself, I know this because he can be over heard bitching and moaning about it. I begged to switch, the lady who you talk to about changing stuff said it would be too much work, and then everyone would want to if they let a single person switch. They switched my best friend, conveniently still not into my club.

Anyway, I'm done bitching. Question is, anyone else put up with this, am I just blaming him for my bad luck / idiocy?

That teacher sounds like a jerk. I'm sorry you have to put up with that.

I've never really witnessed teacher bullying. Except for one year, in this after school care program. The teacher kept yelling at this poor down syndrome kid. I felt pretty bad for him. He didn't know he was doing anything wrong, poor kid. I remember he would lick stuff and the teacher would get mad and shout. Which is weird, because normally she was rational.

Parents solve nothing.He know's he's rebellious on the inside,so it's about time you just release it dude.

Congratulations humanity,because you refuse to let go of the old and evolve you actually make people believe in 2012. Not only that, but you're the only species on Earth that were able to make it possible, now we get to sit until we die because we couldn't get to Mars. We have failed as a society and don't deserve our gifts to survive for this long. Maybe this is why dinosaurs are extinct, we sure aren't any better than the dirt you say we're created from.! Noo

The only thing that would probably work is call some kind of Education inspection. There is one in your country I hope. I'm sure there is some kind of rule that says that you can't pick on students. If it's there then you can probably get him fired, or worse.
