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.

Need help with homework?

All day today, about the only thing that I learned that I will ever use in the future was how a relay circuit works. The rest was mostly bullsh*t that I won't remember for long after the exam. We spent half an hour in french imagining the next scene in a book we were reading, and then roleplay it. Nobody cares about this book, by the way. Maybe I'll burn it when we're done with it. I get the feeling our teacher just gives us those bullshit tasks so we're busy. It's kinda sad, the teachers are accepting that all they do is prepare us for the exams. They know we're not really learning, but nobody does anything.

So I've started a group called "The Rebels". At first, the plan was to organise a mass strike, but for now we're only writing a letter to the principal to make it clear that we want change. Also, we're only three people right now, so a strike would be kinda ineffective.

Also, I should maybe start another thread for this since there might still be someone turning to me with homework.
