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.

Make a Joke About a Teacher, Threatened to be Suspended

What. The. Fuck. I'm sure many kids have said WAYYY worse things about teachers and they got away with it just fine. It's stupid that after praising the teacher, and volunteering, the principal just HAAAAAAAAAD to step in and prove his point. Sounds like a funny teacher though. Biggrin
I fucking HATE my vice principal. He yells at kids for no reason.

Most of the time... when you're crying, nobody notices your tears.
Most of the time... when you're worried, nobody feels your pain.
Most of the time... when you're happy, nobody sees your smile.
But when you fart just one time...

I see you were a victim of zero tolerance. An extremely BULLSHIT policy practiced by many schools.

Make a Joke About a Teacher, Threatened to be Suspended

Quote:She also makes a comment about how she could suspend me.

There is a world where anything you say can be criticized and you can loose an employment position you worked your whole life to obtain. People who walk this tightrope are on a hair trigger to avoid being accused of whatever verbal "crime" is in fashion at the moment. These people cannot afford to have a sense of humor.

Her comment towards you was not so much about you, but about her fear that she might be found guilty of allowing some, even peripherally, word or concept to be expressed that could threaten her job.

This is why on TV shows like "The Voice" everyone seems so excessively pleasant. They know if they were to ever express disappointment or even sadness, they might never be allowed to work in the field again. Politicians, teachers, actors, and anyone who can be a source of any public attention have to live in this fishbowl of scrutiny.

It could be worse, you might have to live in her world.
