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.

WESTEST 2 (WV grades 3-11 finals) coming up

So we got finals coming. WESTEST 2, to be precise. They really don't do shit in actually helping a student get better or helping a teacher plan appropriate instruction. In fact it just give the teacher a reason to give you shit.

Because they don't TRY to plan appropriate istruction. This is mostly the school systems (not any persons) fault. They don't WANT you to learn independently and fix your problems (with help or no), they only want to teach to the next standardized testing. This is called 'teaching to the test'.

Students should not be judged based on a test given to them by the state. The school system however believes it is accurate. They don't take into consideration emotional or mental problems the student has. This is proof that even our modern educators were indoctrinated. This is proof that it isn't education, only indoctrination.

Similar standardized testing is going to take place in California (replacing the STAR). We're going to be using Chromebooks and such to take them.

I'm just hoping my CHSPE results come in saying I have an equivalent to a HS diploma, and don't have to deal with that BS.

I prefer paper and pen(cil). I don't trust software testing...

RE: WESTEST 2 (WV grades 3-11 finals) coming up

I have shitty finals upcoming too.

It is all just worthless, standardized tests are fucking worthless.
And as such, I will not give a shit about the results I would get. I hardly give any excrement about these shitty exams in general, and yet, too many people around the internet give way too much shit about exams... these people are simple minded unfortunate souls, and will never ever reach an independent life if they keep believing the school bullshit.

In fact, as respectful as I am, I actually hate these kinds of people.
And I mean those people that go like "Sorry guize, can not make fun art for ya, shitty finals coming and I gutta study!11"
I just... easily get pissed off by people like that, it is just that any help for them comes too late, they are too indoctrinated.

I have better and more important things to do in my life: Learning to hate myself less and staring at the sunrise in the morning outside.

Why does the Government need to know how smart we are?

I've been told standardized testing results affect property values as well.
