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 just had a massive brain spark on the scale of an orgasm cocaine high cosmic big bang scale.

If Im gonna waste time of my life struggling for something, why the hell not struggle to brainwash the populsce through education?

Ive gone through various lowscale schools that ended up growing and Ive felt their flaws firsthand. I have my own opinions on education as well. Plus I dont have tomworry about not having a masters in engineering because as students ourselves, we spent the last decade of so of our lives in education!

I think its time I research on starting a college. Plus it'd help me pick out potential minions for my plan for global domination...

Can I be the head of your secret police?

I'll also accept being a high-ranking general of the Brainiac army

RE: Brain Academy

Wat much legit.

I've been making plans and even intend to start a nonprofit organization to start the process. I just need to figure out how people survive in the process since a lot of time is spent on the work. Where dat personal spending cash come in to survive?

Basics:STEM focused institute linked to a large college that will hopefully provide liberal studies and most of the club activities. I hope institute to also mutually cooperate with students and provide them college resources to utilize for making money(with obviously a percentage going to the school). Ideal hopes are to make it center for research, study, temp work(using school resources to help with money making plans), and perhaps even a college bank.

The main idea being to integrate students with the college itself so as to give them actual practical hands on experience that will enrich their curriculum(which will be for all purposes limited based only whether a student can really do differential equations without knowing precalc, thus qualification exams. No Gen Ed at all and no strict course path to a major)

RE: Brain Academy

Maybe even shake up the standard system and try to bring in HS to be combined with college. Provide own assessment test that'd be cheaper than the cursed SAT.
