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.

Police in School

Ours is called a Prevention Resource Officer, but I call him a rent-a-cop. He arrests (I think under school authority) all the time for offenses as simple as fighting twice. TWICE. BS. When he does drug sweeps he calls in the cops and they search the building. COINCIDENTALLY, there is no announcement. They announce Code Yellow and they close the blinds and doors. They clearly don't want you to know that they are doing a drug sweep.

1) I have a right to know formally (through a manner that is not looking out the window to see 3 cop cars) that there is code yellow because of the sweep; hiding behind their rule will not hide them from the law.

The rule?
"Lockers are school property and are subject to inspection, announced or unannounced."

2)They do not have a right to hide the fact that they are searching, for then the search is made unknowingly, thus unconstitutional.

My state says that you may not remain silent, even when being questioned by a rent-a-cop, about school misconduct. And at my school the rent a cop is usually there when you are being questioned, regardless if you were involved. Seems like an attempt to intimidate them into confessing/snitching.

Thoughts?

Police in School

There are actual legit police officers at my school.

Remember constitutional rights are actually suspended in school. However, if you wish to express your Miranda rights, go for it.

RE: Police in School

Is he not a police officer? Most schools I've seen and heard of don't use private security, and districts sometimes have dedicated police forces. But maybe not in this case, if he has to call police in for searches -- but maybe this is procedure nonetheless.

Fighting is in most places illegal, so I'm not sure why this is such an upsetting thing that the police intervene. They would do so to any of us nearly anywhere, not only in school, and arrests would be made.

Lockers are the school's property, as they say, and they really don't have to tell you when they're searching them, infuriating as it may be. These locations are compromised for any subversive purposes and it would be best to simply avoid keeping anything there that would cause you trouble.

As for incriminating yourself, might as well stay quiet. What are they going to do about it?

RE: Police in School

This article proves my point. It's the school-to-prison pipeline, not even to mention anything else.
