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.

Yeah, I heard somewhere that none of the other states make us pay some 200 dollars extra for the books we don't even get to keep. Seriously, it would be cheaper to BUY the damn books.

So, who here has to pay this?

Say what? You have to pay for the books in high school you mean? At a public school? wtf. I've never heard of such a thing.

Yup. My state is oh so nice. And we can't graduate until we pay it all off. You know, with all this money we're forced to pay, you'd think we'd stop having one of the most shitty education systems in existence.

Wow, typical ungrateful American. The US has the best education system in existence. The kids in Africa would die to have the opportunity you are having and yet you are so openly ungrateful about it. IMO all of you should be shipped to Africa and the Africans shipped to the US, because they would actually APPRECIATE the things you guys take for granted.

FFS are you serious? Our state has some law that REQUIRES the county to play for any books we need. That bites bro.

Re: I heard I'm the only state that has to pay book rental.

Yup, and we now have to go out and buy some book "The Horse Whisperer" because our English teacher doesn't have it. And now my mom is yelling at me for being needy. What the fuck? Just because the school says I need something different everyday doesn't mean I'm being needy, that's the school that's being needy. And I fucking paid for half my shit with my own money. So she needs to shut her mouth.
