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.

I agree with the stuff in that post above other then the school part.

Suicide is a permanent solution, for a temporary problem.

School Makes me want to kill myself

I know about frustration in school in 5th grade i was in a retarded special ed program I was angry at the teachers the basically cut us off from the other kids(thought we were retards a stereotype that only cause they know us) so one day I made an off hand comment about mind controling the teachers. by the the time the principal got hold of this they switch they story to me make death threats or trying to poison the teachers so yeah every one does crazy things cause frustration

I often get those suicidal tendencies at scool as well. It helps a tremendous amount for me personally to know that if i stick with it I'll grow up to be most likely sucsuessful. For the cynical type it may help to strive toward sucsuess souly because you know you will be much better off than your teachers while they spend their sad lives in a broken education system making barely enough to live like most do.

Greywolf.

There are ass hole policemen, there are good policemen. There are ass hole doctors, there are good doctors. there are ass hole teachers, there are good teachers. While it is true that there are teachers/educators who enter the profession for the school holidays and so as not to spend their lives flipping burgers or turning tricks, there are many, the majority in fact who enter teaching to make the lives of children and young people better, the world over.

Education is a right and I for one am damn glad to have access to it, as I'm sure you are aware, many people in the world don't. there are problems with the system, that is undoubted. There are also problems with drug policies, gun laws and prison overcrowding.

As someone who has had suicidal feelings in school for many years, i can only hope that better education about mental health, better help becoming available and the importance of accessing every different type of learner in the classroom are at the top of the list for system reforms.

To make such a sweeping generalisation about teachers is frankly ignorant and flies in the face of hundreds of years of thousands of people working for every child's right to an education. Many teachers are good people who love children and know that they may be able to offer them something fundamental.

Mralexo333, I commend you for handling your situation and hanging in there. I'm sorry you're feeling like this. I sought help in a free counselling charity and my sister and forums like this. Do you have access to anything like that? Could you talk to your parents about moving schools? Keep hanging in there.

I'm pretty sure school sucks your dick too. And licks your ass. I can only imagine if you lived in a tiny village in Africa or India with no right to an education. I wonder how you'd feel. Your are portraying a violation of such a basic human right. Your ungratefulness makes me laugh. I suck your tiny dick and lick your tiny tight ass, on behalf of all the students in the world fighting to have an education.

suicide has also crossed my mind, though I haven't considered anything even near doing it, far far far away from doing it. Stay Strong! :hug
Don't know how to help you with more than what I've said :(
