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.

-SoulRiser

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.

Re: u people are idiots

Quote:hey have fun when u try to get a job later,


I will, I'll be getting a job I want with skills I have that includes something I'll be passionate about.

Quote:because when an employer sees that u hav no education, they're just going to tell you, "goodbye",

Actually, they won't, because I will have an education, maybe not a traditional one, but an education nonetheless.

Quote:then you won't be able to eat food

Really? Pray tell, what shall we eat, then?
Air? Clouds? Cakes made out of rainbows and sunshine?

Quote:i worry for the future of every1 here

OH! I get it. You're my mom, right?
I didn't know you knew how to use the internetz.

Quote: because you're all going to be failures without a proper education,

We all have different definitions of all those words.

Quote:i just dont get it

Too bad. Go back to the intro page of the site and read through some of the articles. Learn proper English. Get some critical thinking skills. Maybe then you'll be able to understand.


Quote:ok

Ok to what???

Carla Franklin may be a whore. She may be a wonderful, kind, moral woman. Seeing as I don't know her personally, I cannot know for sure. However, I find her actions (suing Google, requesting the personal info of her critics, getting angry over random internet idiocy that she should ignore and be bigger than, trying to get this site in trouble because of a few users' commentary on the situation, etc.) pretty ridiculous and unwarranted. If she didn't want people to to be talking about/judging her, well 1. that's impossible, she's a human, and 2. she shouldn't have been a model or agreed to be on film. AND 3. she DEFINITELY shouldn't have sued Google and made all this fuss over a few random idiots whom she probably won't ever know expressing their opinion. Mmkay? MMKAY.

First, I don't plan to work under a boss as I think it's a silly system; I have other things that I love to do and hope to pursue as careers long into my old age. Second, my certificates will still say I took all these high school classes; it just won't note that I took them all online in a few minutes time. Third, here's a great few lists of high school dropouts and people with minimal educations: http://under30ceo.com/top-8-billionaire-dropouts/

Re: u people are idiots

You cannot even spell properly. You my friend, fail. I am in High School and run my own business. I am quite successful, and have been offered a job at Google Montreal (Who didn't know I was only 17). School has not benefited me in any way. It looks like it hasn't done you much good either.

Haha. Define idiot. Is it a person who is worried about their education because a corrupt schooling system needs to be improved or is it a person who actually likes this horrible system, and tells us that we are more stupid when quite obviously we have better grammar and reasoning than you.

I know this has been a long time since the user has been here, but I want to argue nonetheless.

Why the hell are you worrying about our future and thinking we're all going to be failures? A lot of us aren't looking to drop out and many of us are looking to get into college to get a useful education. We just hate having to drag our ass nearly every day of our lives being forced fed "information" which we may have 0 interest in with many other people that don't want to be there as well. We hate having our civil rights stripped in a confined institution in which we must obey authority at all costs. We hate being forced to memorize rather than actually learn.

And we don't hate education here. In fact, it's the exact opposite of that. A lot of us love to learn, but we prefer to learn at our own pace, using our own sources, during our own time, and not have to obey some authority in a confined institution. As an example, I've learned far more about the history of Europe at home than I have in school.

We just hate the current "education" system as I described above. We're forced there against our will. We can't leave because if we do we'll be labeled "defiant" and eventually get arrested. We don't like memorizing things and being pressured to do well on standardized testing. We don't like to feel less than human and forced to obey authorities. We don't like being forced to be in a confined area with many other people which we may not like. Fuck the schooling system.
