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.

Another Teacher is threatening referrals.

One time my teacher (Mr. Larsen) has threatened me with referrals (Write-ups).
Ranging from:
Not being cool (Same shit happens with most teachers I know)
Laughing with friends (Considered being silly or not cool)

I sometimes feel like reporting this teacher to the warden (Principal)
What's next? Saying "I'm Sick" gets me a referral?

What's your say on this.
Not only that my school has a thing called BUZZ Time,
Kids who are apparently not in "Special Education" gets to go to things such as Hang out, basket ball (That's just for starters) and before anyone asks. Yes I am in Special Ed.
And the teachers keep you in there (Room 38). The person's name is Ms. Salerno
I feel as if the principal gave the teacher the "OK" to do it.
I said on the first day of school I may go with my friend to hang out.
BUT NO! I have to be in their with their assigned "Activities" Brickwall

That's vile! And I think that might be illegal. I don't know for sure, though. What country do you live in?

I don't know if it's illegal, but it probably is and at the moment I'm making sure. But the thing is, isn't there laws against denying somebody privileges just because they're "special needs."

RE: Another Teacher is threatening referrals.

If it's written into a student's IEP he or she can be put into additional academic time with other disabled peers which by default does not allow them to participate in traditional electives.

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

But that is not only also unfair, but it's also not the same. I'm no lawyer, but from what I'm hearing you're talking about a different situation than SchoolIsPrison's.

RE: Another Teacher is threatening referrals.

They arent denying privilege. Special Ed works under different systems so I doubt there will be any legal issues for dealing with the "special" kids. Hell, privileges arent guaranteed by law anyway. Rights are, and for students, rights are pretty damn limited.

RE: Another Teacher is threatening referrals.

I'm afraid it just sounds different because of the way I worded it but it amounts to the same thing. There are only so many hours in a school day. If the IEP calls for double block reading, double block math, learning strategies, and regular science, language arts, and history the student's day doesn't allow for PE, band, recess, or whatever type of activity the OP is describing. From the student's perspective he or she may be experiencing segregation and exclusion from certain activities enjoyed by their non-disabled peers. Furthermore, the student's assessment of the situation is accurate. However, it's legal. In fact, in many cases, if it wasn't implemented in such a way, the district could be sued for failing to adequately address the educational needs of a disabled student.

Actually, he never said anything about it being part of anybody's IEP so that's why I'm sure it's ilegal, In fact, he implied that it wasn't.


SchoolIsPrison, I'd suggest you find out if it's in your IEP anyway. If it isn't, then it's probably illegal and you can at least bluff.

RE: Another Teacher is threatening referrals.

Prison, do you know if you have an IEP or a 504?

Also, if you don't mind saying, do you know how they categorize your disability? Do they call you Specific Learning Disabled (SLD)? Do they call it Intellectually Delayed or Emotionally Handicapped or Oppositional Defiance Disorder (or very similar terms)? Or they might call it Speech Only?

If you don't want to answer that's fine.

I think you have a right to see your IEP and to be part of the IEP planning process starting at the age of 14.

It might be in your best interest to switch from an IEP to a 504 if you're on an IEP but you'll need a parent to sign off on any changes.

If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

RE: Another Teacher is threatening referrals.

So in your "least restrictive environment" section your IEP reads that you're to spend 100% of your school day with non-disabled peers?

Which is usually due to doing things that are cool.

Hidden stuff:
"CONSENSUAL incest is not wrong. (Abuse victims: being abused by a relative does not make it wrong for others to have consensual incest, any more than rape by a stranger makes all sex wrong. Sex and assault/molestation are two different things.) An aversion became common in humans that aided in population growth as one disease couldn't wipe out the human race. That's not a problem anymore.

Consensual incest is very common. You know people who have been involved, whether you know it or not.

There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consensual
incest that is consistently applied to other relationships. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to personally engage in what I call consanguinamory, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults. Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative. It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we? If someone thinks YOUR love life is disgusting, should you be thrown in prison?

Some people try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and
marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

Some say "Your sibling should not be your lover." That is not a reason. It begs the question. Many people have many relationships that have more than one aspect. Some women say their sister is their best friend. Why can’t their sister be a wife, too?

Some say “There is a power differential.” This applies least of all to siblings or cousins who are close in age, but even where the power differential exists, it is not a justification for denying this freedom to sex or to marry. There is a power differential in just about any relationship, sometimes an enormous power differential. To question if consent is truly possible in these cases is insulting and demeaning.

Some say “There are so many people outside of your family." There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. So, this isn't a good reason either. Let consenting adults love each other the way they want!"-Keith Pullman
