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.

Mandatory ID Check

So basically our school have enacted a bunch of rules about bringing id's. They said you have to wear it around neck and once a week they go over the intercom: "Teachers plz check ids." So now me and my friends yell: "PRISON LOCKDOWN!" each time they do it...Pirate

Mandatory ID Check

I think the school I am going to used to that. Well my 8th grade Social Studies teacher who went there said that for 4 years he used some other girls ID he found on the floor. And it totally worked out for him...

ID checks cannot prevent school shootings because the shooter would likely to shoot first and answer any of your "show your ID" questions later.

Mandatory ID Check

my school does that as well (aside from the scheduled id checks), they don't really serve any actual function

RE: Mandatory ID Check

Wait, this is to prevent school shootings? Even if a shooter did show their ID before shooting, how would that help?

RE: Mandatory ID Check

My school requires certain students to show IDs to get out as well as in (like everyone else).

What do you mean by certain students? Sounds like they are using profiling to sort out the potential "delinquents"
