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 now consider myself A radical unschooler and advocate for public education, but rather under a democratic free schooling model, which is a much different solution than probably most people who want to reform education, but I think I lost the reasoning or originally the fundamental reasons. Do children enjoy being in school, if not why do they hate school in the first place? And what are the problems with it? Can I have some statistic on student dissatisfaction or something like that? Or can I have some readings on education?

I've actually done surveys on this myself (on 2 occasions)... a lot of teens in 2015 seem rather unhappy with the situation of education in the U.S. While I'm not sure about wide statistics, it's possibly worth making a survey yourself.

This is worth checking out.

I haven't got a wide scale survey about how much people like school, but at least 1/2 of the kids in my grade like school. Seemingly. I'm probably one of the few who truly despises it (or shows it).

This is in 7th grade, just fyi.

schoolsux's countdown until school ends:

177 days until i get out of freshman year (aka hell)
1280 days until I get out of prison (aka school)

(as of november 28, 2016)

also Fu school

Yeah. I didn't start hating school until 10th grade, when everything just really collapsed around me and I realized everything was bullshit. I actually saw cracks in the wall during 9th grade, even though that was my best year in school (i.e. zero tolerance policies and special education).
