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.

Baltimore Algebra Project

Quote:The Baltimore Algebra Project is a democratic, student-run and organized program mainly focused on the one-on-one tutoring of math at the middle and high school levels. Our mission is to carve a community of leaders as well as exhibit leadership
while remaining committed to the education of those in need of advancements in their socioeconomic status.

Our staff is completely comprised of young people (under the age of 25). We hire both High School and College aged students to be tutors, organizers, leaders, and executives for our organization.

We strive to work under a true democracy so that everyone gets their voices heard. We organize ourselves into committees that work under several branches including our Executive team, Leadership team, Organizing team, and our Tutoring team. We believe that education should be a constitutional right, and until we can have that right met it becomes our duty to educate ourselves and our peers.

The student-run Baltimore Algebra Project successfully stopped a youth prison from being constructed and occupied a school board meeting attempting to stop closures of schools.

They currently participate in the #blacklivesmatter movement and the Baltimore riots.

Hmm they claim to advocate for a change in the school system but what exactly does that entail? They say something on the website about a student bill of rights but the image attached is too small to read lel.

Seem pretty interesting anyway.

RE: Baltimore Algebra Project

I wouldn't expect the people who made this Baltimore Algebra Project to blow up random cars or loot stores.
I wouldn't mind if police stations or courts got looted. That'd be badass.

I am master of monopoly. Scheming, backstabbing, cheating, fraud, deceit. Win nearly every game.

I always sneak cash from the bank when no one is looking. Like a true Wall Street protege.
