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.

Compulsory Schooling laws

I've thought about it and realized that some states vary upon dropout rates and things like that, but is compulsory schooling in general something up to the state itself or is it really some national law? That would be easier to identify the laws, so that you would know how to rebel or say. If My parents dont have reasonable dialogue, I plan on recording, videotaping, and taking pictures on any dirt I can take on the school, though without doing things that end up harming the autonomy of the students themselves, noir creates a sense of alineation between my comrades, Though I could try to plan to sue and create court case battles against the private-public for profit school that I go to that is a more tangible and immediate form of punishment and reward. I tried to resist and become dissentful of school, but ultimatley my hysteria and anger made me ended up in the school. I guess I learned in some ways how to communicate with other people in a non coercive manner, and become open minded and willing to criticize on my own value system. Though my friends and comrades of SS I stand in solidtarity and support for you and one another, I will plan and try to take charge and change my situation. Not just for me, but for other people as well.

RE: Compulsory Schooling laws

I'm not from the USA. Here in Israel you have to go to school or homeschool. In USA from what I've gathered it's the same, with different states having a different level of ease for getting into homeschooling.
