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.

A rant that I just feel should be put on teh interwebz

This is a rant I made about this 260 pound football coach who is loud and likes to plaster his walls with a bunch of posters of wrestling and football. Who likes to accuse people who don't get their work done of being lazy.

Lazy? Really? (heh) I'm lazy. Yeah right. I have every goddamn right to be lazy. You don't understand what you just said there. You're not just calling them lazy, you're not just calling them worthless, you're hurting their self esteem. I could have a gun right now. I could hurl a desk at you now. Yea, and now everyone cares about how I feel about an Mys or a Ace or Notes or Vocab. or doing another packet. That doesn't just go for math class either. You have no idea how much it hurts to hear those words. Some people might just have the incentive to stay up all night, crying, for the fact that they feel so worthless and useless. And do you even know what's in these kid's backrounds? Hell served for breakfast,lunch, and dinner, everyday, for some of them. So is it so crazy that I don't get some math done? That I happened to have better things to do that I actually like? FUCK NO it isn't. You're lucky I showed up to class. Do you know what it's like to hate your own life? Do you? Cause I do. I drown myself in Music and games everyday to forget all that's happened in school, to forget the coercion, to forget all of you. Fuck off.

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.

Or as close as that can be recreated on an internet forum.

How can they assume they're lazy anyway? Some people have legit difficulties learning things. To just assume they're being lazy does nothing to encourge them. To me there is nothing more frusturating then trying to do something, fail, and then get told I'm not trying hard enough.
