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.

School just called my parents for bullshit

They said i wasn't in school for 1 or more classes, when i was in all of my classes. Now my parents are giving me shit about it, even though i never skip class. Why the fuck would they call us with a robo call and say i wasn't in school today?!?

I am 14, and have my own computer repair business! And I'm a small time DJ also. No joke.

If you need tech support, PM me. Everything's free of charge. I use Teamviewer in case it's needed.

Do you have a means of checking your attendance to find out what they marked you absent for? If so, can you rectify the situation by talking with whoever marked you absent?

Anyway, it's shameful that your parents trust the school's word over yours. That's the state of affairs in most of America's households, and it's sickening. Perhaps a shift in cultural opinion can nullify this over time.

Sounds like you need to have a talk with your school about it.

I've been through the exact same situation, typically you have to go get the teacher(s) that marked you absent, and have them sign off an attendance slip saying you were really there.

I've had a similar situation where I have been marked absent in a class when I was there, the teacher realized I was there after submitting attendance and I had to go up to the front office to get them to fix it.

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

Just do what I've always done, blame the school.

Yep. I blamed the inefficiencies of the admins,staff,teachers or whoever most pertained to the screw up. Usually worked.

My teacher called my mother because I was laughing with my mate in class, but it wasn't loud...

I thought my father will fucking murder me, somebody clearly had anger management issues...

"Your teacher said you missed your homework"
"Course I missed my homework, the idiot didn't even teach the stupid topic. How the hell am I supposed to do homework when I don't know what to do! Not my fault the teacher can't do his job and TEACH!"
^Typical brainiac response in early HS.
