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.

I used to complain about the same stuff too when I first got on here.

Funny how my "School Sucks Because...." list has grown since.

RE: A 10 things that i think is bullshit about school

1. Memorizing and then regurgitating facts onto a test and then forgetting them. http://m.theatlantic.com/education/archi...ng/279425/
2. Homework. Homework makes kids lose sleep over it, which damages your immune system; the immense amount of homework damages your immune system.
3. Teachers who humiliate instead of help. Teachers are there to help, then some of them humiliate you when they fail to help.
4. School lunches. School lunches are not delicious nor healthy, which contributes to child obesity.
5. Bullies. This acronym describes bullies: Brutal, Uncontrollable, Low-self-esteemed Losers who Yearn for attention (B.U.L.L.Y.).
6. Cliques. In school, we are pressured to "follow the herd" rather than be ourselves.
7. Assemblies. You sit on a rock (AKA a chair) for 2 hours talking about who-knows-what.
8. So many fire drills. Walk out of a classroom past a deafening siren that can be heard a mile away for something that happens once in a blue moon.
9. Report cards and having to return them, signed. World War III breaks loose in my house if I get one B.
10. Drama/love. People are always gossiping and they are already in relationships (note: these are middle-schoolers in relationships).

"If you wanna know how not secure you are, just take a look around. Nothing's secure. Nothing's safe. I don't hate technology, I don't hate hackers, because that's just what comes with it, without those hackers we wouldn't solve the problems we need to solve, especially security."

This was mostly at my old school... But anyways :
1) Sex-obssessed class
2)Ignorant classmates
3) Cruel French teacher. "Why didn't you do this?!" "I was sick" "Whatever. You'll get detention."
4)No friends in my actual situation.
New school
5) Latin. Lots of Latin.
6) Dumb English teacher with a thick French accent, who doesn't even know the definition of 'platypus' or can't pronounce 'could'.
7) Rebellious teens.
8) Weird principal. 'Oh, you should eat like the locals!' *Turns head* " Yes, since you're going to France, can you bring some foie gras?'
9) No trips. None at all.
10) Young perverted brats.

2 Lunch - School lunch is often disgusting and unhealthy. It tastes bland compared to food that you can get outside of the cafeteria. It might make you sick as well. It seems as if no one cares about what's going into our bodies.

3 Getting ready to go to school - I have to wake up early and somehow cope with an unforgiving school schedule. By the time I get to my first class, I may be very drowsy and struggling to stay asleep. This problem persists throughout the day because I can't pay attention to anything because of my sleepiness. In addition, I have little to no time to prepare, so I may be going to school without taking a shower on an empty stomach.

4 The Students - The school has turned what are all potentially fascinating individuals into mindless people that act like a herd of sheep that may also act violently because they're all in a place that I hate.

5 Air conditioning - The classes are either too hot or too cold. This makes the learning environment uncomfortable.

6 The Hallways - They're too cramped, too slow moving, and filled with too many people.

8 Dirty bathrooms - The bathrooms are ungodly, with foul smells, unflushed poop with potential clogged toilets, dirty walls and floors carrying only-god-knows, and more that is just not to be spoken of.

9 Dirty Hallways/classrooms - Not only are the bathrooms bad, but so are the hallways and actual learning environments. They may be filled with debris that could be really terrible. In addition, there may be many, many problems plauging the school, which disrupts the learning environment.

10 Boring/mean teachers - I find the way the teachers teach to not be interesting, or they may be too trigger-happy with punishments.

A more constructive version of your post.

Really teachers have never bugged me that much. I think about all the stuff they do and kids they put up with and really I can sympathize with a lot of them. Some are really a lost cause though as with anything.

Have your regrets, but always stay strong from yours truly, Illuzion.

RE: A 10 things that i think is bullshit about school

You know, I am sure their are really good public schools out there, private no doubt, but I only went to public and these are my 10 things:

1) Idiot teachers. No, just saying "figure it out" doesn't teach kids and you look like a moron because you obviously have no idea what the answer is.

2) Putting kids with different backgrounds together. WHY OH WHY?! Do you really think the poor kid is going to hang out with rich kid?? What about psycho kids with well balanced ones? Nope. Just nope.

3) "You're late for class!" I was walking a bit slower today and hanging out with friends. Chill.

4) No encouragement of free thinking. If you even do ONE thing outside the bubble, you get sent to the office/bullied.

5) Don't want to go to college? Well then this school has no resources for you!

6) You do want to go to college? Well then let's look at LOCAL places because you TOTALLY want to stay in your area as long as you can!!

7) Early morning. Yeah, I'm not getting paid to do this so don't expect me to be happy about it.

8) Mean teachers.

9) To nice teachers. Seriously, we shouldn't be best friends. It's just weird.

10) Team projects. I think we all get this one. It's really awkward and one person does all the work.

Hope ya'll like them!

I agree with you with the exception of this (well, partly). Putting kids in there and expecting them to somehow get along with the system as it is constructed is not going to happen, believe me. There are definitely ways to gauge conversation and find common ground, though, believe me. It requires thinking outside the factory model.
