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.

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.

My English teacher lied to the Head of English about my homework

Today in English, my English teacher gave everyone a homework. The homework was to read and ANNOTATE Page 28 of Of Mice and Men. I don't even know what annotate means and how to annotate and neither my English teacher nor the Teaching Assistant would tell me what annotate means, so I went to find my English teacher after school. I couldn't find her, so I went to the Head of English instead. She had to deal with another student and told me to go to AF9. My English teacher wasn't there, so I waited until the Head of English finishes dealing with a student. After she did, she had to go to another English teacher (not the one who teaches me) and told me that my English teacher told her that I DON'T HAVE ANY HOMEWORK! Since when? I stayed at school even longer and had to run away if my English teacher was nearby. When the Head of English came out of AF12, I showed her my Link Book to prove her that I have homework. She looked, but told me that she still doesn't believe me. It happened either because:

1. My English teacher just wanted me to do that by myself.

2. My English teacher wanted me to come to her for homework help instead of the Head of English.

3. I don't know what annotate means, so she possibly couldn't have helped me with that.

4. My English teacher just wanted to fail me.

5. The teacher that I went to just didn't want to help me. (I doubt it would ever happen. She did help me with two of my other homeworks after all. Plus I've known her for three years already and I trust her)

I didn't want to argue with her, so I went home.

I talked to my mum on the phone just now and she said my English teacher did the right thing to lie to the Head of Department and the Head of Department did the right thing not to help me with the homework because she can't help me with exams. What?! Homework and exams are not the same thing! But if it's because she can't help me with annotating for whatever reason (I don't know what annotate means, if I knew what it means and if it wasn't too hard, I wouldn't have to go to her), I'll write an apology letter for her and give it to her on Tuesday (Since she has Mondays off).

What have I done wrong?

I guess that teacher doesn't like me anymore.

She was the only person who liked me, until today.

I did the wrong thing. I went to the Head of English for homework help with something I should be able to do on my own. No wonder why my English teacher lied to her about my homework.

I'm surprised she didn't yell at me or anything. She looked annoyed though.

I've known that teacher for three years now. I never hurt her before.

I want to make up for it, but don't know how.

RE: Miss Samms lied to Mrs Neal about my homework

Update: Even though the Head of English doesn't teach me, I skipped English today. Just to make sure I don't get in trouble. For a moment, I thought going to her for homework help with something that is MEANT to be easy was worse than what I did to my Form Tutor two months ago. It was not. What I did two months ago is the worst thing I ever did and nothing can be worse. My Director of Learning and one of the Learning Support teachers told me that I did the right thing to ask for homework help, mg English teacher should not be telling me that I can only go to her and not any other teacher, she made a mistake, but I cannot skip English. I told them that whether I skip English or not I'll get into trouble because if I go to English, I will get in trouble with my English teacher, and if I skip English, I'll get into trouble with someone else. I also wrote a note saying this:

I am the worst student ever because I hugged my Form Tutor on February. Hugging her was the worst thing I could've possibly done. Even bringing pepper spray to school and telling my math teacher to burn in hell wasn't any worse. It was nasty, but hugging my Form Tutor was even nastier. Yeah, it was not just inappropriate or embarrassing, but nasty as well.

My Director of Learning told me that I'm not the worst student ever, it was not the worst thing I could've possibly done, bringing pepper spray to school and telling my math teacher to burn in hell was worse than hugging my Form Tutor, and that hugging her was embarrassing and inappropriate, but not nasty. I didn't believe him. If it wasn't nasty, my Pastoral Leader wouldn't have yelled at me on the same day in Period 4. I told my Director of Learning that I now tie my hands up every Thursday to prevent myself from hugging my Form Tutor again. He asked me why I won't sit away from her instead. And the reason why I won't sit away from her is because then I will have to sit in between two of my classmates. And I hate most people in my class.

I got late to French because of that talk with my Director of Learning.

Miss Samms lied to Mrs Neal about my homework

I would try to get kicked out if I had balls enough. In fact, If I could, I'd get myself a Mohawk and get suspended for inappropriate hairstyle if I could. To be honest, at my school practically any style of hair that doesn't scream aristocrat will get you suspended until your change the hair; it can't be too short or too long, can't be gelled unless it looks fancy and other stupid rules.

My school is a little bit different. I can't get excluded for not following the uniform rules, but I can get a U2 (Uniform Detention), get a blue card and sit in detention for one hour after school. In extreme cases, we get sent home to change and as soon as we change, we have to come back to school. I don't know what happens when you don't change, but I think we just get seclusion. Failure to attend a U2 detention will result in a half day seclusion and three uniform infringements will result in a full day seclusion.

By the way, there was another incident today. My English teacher wanted me to read the page of the booklet. When I finished, she asked me if I finished. I said yes. By the end of the lesson, she asked me the same question. I said yes. She told me to see her after school and lied about my answer to her question. She said that the first time I said "no" when I didn't. I also got in trouble for laughing after a silly boy said that George Bush was Eleanor Roosevelt's husband. Yes, I understand it wasn't appropriate to laugh at something silly like that, but she can't lie about my answer to her question. When I told the Learning Support teachers, they said it's impossible because my English teacher used to be a lawyer. She might have not been a liar back when she was a lawyer, but now she is a liar. I don't want to get her next year. I want the Head of Department as an English teacher.

I even started writing a complaint letter to a maths teacher who is also a Deputy Headteacher and creates timetables.

RE: Miss Samms lied to Mrs Neal about my homework

Kind of fucking totalitarian society are you living? North Korea. Judging by some other o your posts your school is fucking crazy. And don't ever feel bad for laughing. There is nothing wrong with that, people laugh when they are amused, happy or, otherwise entertained; and if school doesnt like that then they can go fuck themseles. Thats my philosphy anyhow. Anyway, best of luck to you. But as Holden Caufield would say, don't ever wish anyone good luck because that's suggesting they'll need it.

Oh, and, P.S.: Lawyers get paid to be liars.
