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.

It looks to me like the only white people are staff. What's the point of this observation? Maybe white people cannot effectively manage black schools.

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

You'd think they'd have thought of actually getting people familiar with the issues of these schools? Of course not.

RE: School release video of boy who police say was bullied and later killed himself

I honestly think it's almost impossible to find people with the required education, ability to pass the certification exams, familiarity with the issues of these schools, and a willingness to accept the pay and working conditions.

Not many people work hard as hell to get out of the ghetto just to return to it for 40 hours a week for a fraction of the income they could earn elsewhere.

That's why the schools are full of the leftover incompetents from suburbia. Sure they can pass the tests. They were written by suburban whites for suburban whites.

If blacks governed their own neighborhood schools the discipline would be brutal. Instead it's passed off to apathetic whites who may have cared thousands of profanity laden tirades ago. You can't destroy a worker's soul and expect the good intentions to survive. Nothing survives.

The kid who pulled the suicide victim's head smashing into the wall... How much abuse do you think he already inflicted on his peers and his teachers? Now let's watch a video of a teacher who had to call a cop and laugh at the absurdity of the kid being dragged out of class. Because those 30 second clips tell the whole story, you know.

Stay in school.

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

To be honest this is sort of a good argument against compulsory education; a lot of kids are headed into an environment where things are most likely to get worse. There's a reason why the impoverished schools stay poor.

RE: School release video of boy who police say was bullied and later killed himself

I'm staying out of the racial debate, but I personally think this kind of thing is way too common. I think school is the cause of a lot of depression which usually evolves into suicide. There was, if I recall correctly, the case of Amanda Todd, who killed herself because of bullies. And I think the hacker group Anonymous raised a shit-storm over it and exposed the guy who bullied her. But this is an old case -- I can't remember.

It's one of the strongest arguments against compulsory education. The environments in public schools are horrendous.

Fuck yes. Too bad there's no "scientific" studies to find out whether these environments are known to be regressive.
