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.

Free time is a privelige? WTF?!

'It's a privelige not a right'.
How many fucking times do I have to hear that?

The day before we went on holidays, our year coordinator was teling us how we work like good slaves until the moment we are temporarily released. Then he tells us not to get too comfortable on our break, because our free time 'is a privelige'.

WHAT. THE. FUCK. I HATE THIS GUY.

They waste our time in a prison for six hours a day, then waste our time at home, and before we know it 12 years have gone by, and guess what, almost all of it WAS POINTLESS.
And this teacher has the audacity to tell us that free time is a privelige not a right.
Maybe I'm overreacting, but I'm really pised right now, and I just had to get this off my chest.
Anyway, I'm on holidays now, but my parents stil make me do revision.

Is adult entertainment killing our children? or is killing our children entertaining our adults?

In the song Working Class Hero John Lennon sings

from the moment you're born they make you feel small
by giving you no time instead of it all

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

And I think the pain is so great that soon I'll feel nothing at all... I really hope it doesn't come to that.

Free time should be a choice... and if you love your job you will always have free time. Fuck whoever says "free time is a privilege". He is an asshole who probably hates his life.

Yeah, that guy is an asshole, I'm not sure if he hates his life though... he seems to enjoy oppressing us.

Fuck. They told us right before summer vacation that free time was a privilege. Who the fuck do they think they are? Just because they grew into a twisted perversion of what school was supposed to be, doesn't mean they have to be a dick about it.

"Ask them no more questions, never hear them lying"

People say the problem with me is I have psychotic tendencies and care not about other human beings I don't like and or know. So?

Free time wouldn't even be considered free time as it is only a school brainwash technique. Shrug Whip Grouphug

Note: Teachers don't normally huddle together to preform free time.

Apparently having a house to live in, food, clothing, water, and free will are too.

To be an anarchist, is to suffer greatly. To be a black woman is to suffer secretly. To be the earth, is to suffer silently.

I wish no harm on anyone, but those whose harmful ways will not stop without the same harm.

It's time we kill this cancerous system, before it kills us and everything left of gaia. Rise from our immaturity and take back our autonomy!

Re: Free time is a privelige? WTF?!

Your views on school change a lot after you graduate.

"Troll" is a common defense mechanism. If someone disagrees with you, the immediate reaction is "lol troll." You can't just jump to that conclusion because you want to be victimized, however.

Granted, sometimes you are being trolled.

Sometimes you're just wrong.

"A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

Yep. He told us since we can't get suspended at the end of the school year, they could slam us in summer school for the whole 3 months. I wouldn't consider it the smartest move.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.
