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.

WTF: Here lies our brainwashed parents

Welcome to my daily forum series. As usual, we will be discussing the overall idiocy of our corrupt education system. Anyway, who has a parent that supports school? One? Two? All of you? Not very surprising. The school system has the control over both brainwashed children and adults. In fact the entire adult community has been rid of intelligence. And it does not end with liking school. No, they have turned teens and kids into stereotypes. They say we have been ruined. Who raised us? The adults. Who teaches us? Adult teachers. Seeing a pattern here? Adults themselves are to immature to admit that their bad methods of raising the next generation have backfired and caused us to be born In a bad world. But they say technology and video games are to blame. Okay, so they are not the greatest things in the world. But who created a cycle filled with one hour periods of boredom locked in a prison? THEY DID. And now the adults that actually try hard to make us happy are being fooled. Damn it!Noo So today, I just wanted to honor the years where we all had intelligence. Where we were not judged by tests of our brain, where our knowledge was not given to us yet shadowed through meaningless worksheets, and when we were treated like angels. The toddler years. As sad as it is, age 5 was probably the best time of my life. Me and my friends created stories that we had a role in and we got the chance to use our imaginations. It was so fun. And I learned more in those years than in my entire life. I swear I am going to get those times back.

RE: WTF: Here lies our brainwashed parents

My mom is a total bitch about me doing my schoolwork and getting A's. She's strict about me getting that holy high school diploma. I even told her about GED, homeschooling, and democratic schools, but she just ignores those. It seems that she sees no other way of doing things other than passing public school. I basically have no control or say in my life choices or even small choises. All I can do is be pissed off and complain. If there was some way for me to stand up for myself and take control of my own life, I'd jump at it. If there was someone who could defend or save me, I'd be inviting and grateful. I have goals of being a great writer/musician/video game designer, but high school is not doing me any favors or helping me. My mom thinks that since I'm "just a kid" and she's the mother and the adult, she's the smarter person and should make ALL the decisions concerning me. She always has to be right. Something needs to change...

You could try to file for emancipation. That'd give you the legal freedoms of an 18 year old at a younger age, though in the US the law governing it varies state by state(some just need you to file it, others want some reasons and a whole process behind it)

Some states, like mine, you need to be either married or in the military. Which you need to be 18 to do. So, it's just a catch 22 to make emancipation impossible.

In NJ it isn't really clear. Most cases usually involved abuse or neglect, so that's what the courts here follow for emancipation(and you can start only at 16).

And like sub says, in some states it's just a load of BS -_-
You'll need to just do your research and hope your state is a bit more liberal when it comes to such cases.

RE: WTF: Here lies our brainwashed parents

I read the laws for Florida. It says that the parents need to initiate the emancipation petition. And my mom probably won't initiate it... I hate feeling stuck and powerless.

I wonder who thinks up these requirements. It's like telling a citizen of a dictatorship that if he wants a more free country, to ask permission from the dictator.(Usually meaning said person ends up dead, dying or either/or in jail)
