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.

Perkiomen Valley Walkout/Prostest

Omg, this seriously brings a tear to my eye. Some of you may know about the Rebel Against PV movement, well a few of the students did participate, while they view school as positive and an actual learning environment, at least they are actually uniting and doing this, seriously, this is somewhat, awesome.

The videos above document a little bit of it. I'm also a bit proud to say that I have a few friends whom participated in it.

Edit: For clarification the Rebel movement has no ties to this. A few students whom were in the rebel movement were in this.

A little update, I will occasionally post snippets from FB on the protest:
"To the people who stayed out there;
What the fuck were you thinking??? You're not helping anything, i'm sorry. Why the fuck would you leave??? Yiu just made every participant look like a jerk off because you decided to start acting disrespectful! The whole goddamn point was CIVIL disobedience. You acted like goddamn children, and they took notice of that! So now we're gonna be grilled at the board meeting in monday thanks to you! nice fucking job, dumbasses!
Listen, we all want the same goddamn thing, and I understand that you guys are passionate people, and I know it was for the right reason but WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE THE FUCKING CAMPUS!???? Thanks for making EVERYONE LOOK LIKE SHIT, you selfish dicks!
We got our message out there! Yeah, the politician lectured us on dumb shit but there are still ways to make a change! But rather than thinking, you fucking pull a stunt like that??? Don't lower yourself! They won't fucking take us seriously! You should better educate yourself, and be persistent like an adult so they ACTUALLY LISTEN. But no, you fucking ruined it.
Thanks." ~A Friend

Other FB responses from the same person:
"Listen, I don't give a fuck who you are. You just put ALL OF OUR HARD WORK on the line. So if i'm stuck in all college prep classes and fail the next two years, I will consider you as much of an enemy as the School Board. Fuck you."

Stalin disproved the efficiency of peaceful rebellion and civil disobedience...
(So while I'm not a fan of Stalin in many cases, I have to approve of the efficiency of some of his tactics)
