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.

Thumbs Down A student in Macedonia got a refrial because she protested against the system

Weights on students who are battling for a superior education for their rights proceed. Secondary school student Ilina DIMOVSKA Veles, member of a year ago's secondary school dissents, got lessened conduct just for basic post on Facebook. As confirmation to the danger to opportunity of expression, what's more, read the content in its necessary rendition, at first posted on the site -

"Again I with long messages. What's more, this time I need everybody to peruse in light of the fact that the end of the day, websites and interpersonal organizations are intense apparatuses for sharing perspectives and encounters.

In the last quarter of schools, specifically school "Secondary School Koco Racin" - Veles, go through an excursion that would not wish for our most noticeably awful adversary. Quickly, I distributed a status in which his co reverberated around pursuing students who were without outfits of festivity of secondary school.

Status was welcomed for meetings with the executive and administration that felt exceptionally outraged and astounded and hurt that come clean about what happens in the recreation center. Talks were psychiatric badgering to me as a result of the way I turned, and the way that three man's grown-ups and tossed a schoolgirl 16 years. I got a danger or iPod better to say that an announcement would be punished for FB status.

One and only certainty: pedagogical measures forced on an Student just on the off chance that he acted with something in school or amid guideline, here especially on the off chance that it is an affront, if the culpable teacher of school would be rendered pedagogical measure, however not if the culpable educator the road nightfall. By the way, I have insulted anybody in an educational foundation.

Coming back to the story, by the very certainty over, the conclusion is that the school as an establishment has no privilege to force my pedagogical measure, realizing that informal communities are a spot where everybody can say what he needs, we are day by day witness to it.

I was a non-administrative, had a charming night, my evaluations are entirely alright. Grinning I got back home and my mom welcomed me with the words "You have inadmissible conduct.". By the way, in the majority of the half to have 2 unjustified. From postponement generally.

Also, here as of now blasting film. Not able to process and along these lines I compose this. I can't overlook what is going on.

To force pedagogical measure, it is important to ensure the minutes, to meet committee to settle on a choice, the choice to submit to the guardian and a mark from a guardian.

Here I let you know, none of this happened. Neither I nor my guardians marked the minutes, no choice was conveyed to my guardians nor anybody marked the choice.

Possibly a little tremble while I am composing this? Not from trepidation, but rather from displeasure. Outrage against the framework, rage against the educational establishment are examining, rage against quitters and the individuals who participate in this shamefulness. Yes, it is unfairness. Simply don't know how the eye will see me those individuals in my remaining eighteen months of educating in the gym. Undoubtedly, as you will see me in the eye? Once done bad form is bad form ever caused.

They thought they would have the capacity to scare me, yet obviously did not succeed. Despite the way that possibly this conduct won't have the capacity to select in school (and I will be compelled to stay right here). Notwithstanding every one of the weights and misuse I encountered in the previous two months.

Since I checked on the laws and conversed with specialists, I said to myself: "In the event that you attempt to hurt me, go out in broad daylight with the story, without hair on dialect." Don't get furious about this, I simply remain on his oath.

Fascism is a troublesome word for this. I would say, let you know all that you need, yet later you will bear the results in the event that we don't care for what you say.

I need to deliver to everybody who peruses this. On the off chance that you are a quitter will flourish. In the event that you quiet down they will thrive. Shockingly, for our situation. What's more, ought to be. On the off chance that you need to change, begin from yourself and communicating your position. This offer is not to debilitate anybody, but instead to support. Anybody can stand firm on what he supposes and does not fall under impacts, weights or dangers. Then again some out of line and unpredictable pedagogical measures. Optional education will recollect after this. I will recollect for shameful acts, strains, quitters, individuals with awful aims, insufficient educational changes. It is the time in which I live, and my associates. Let stand one behind the other and battle against these shameful acts.

To condense: the colossal restrained Student put his unacceptable conduct on the grounds that Facebook status. "
