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.

English Teacher = Major Bitch

Hey guys,
Yeah i know i'm a first time poster here and i hate to say it but my first post is a rant of sorts.

Mainly its all about my English teacher and how she is inconsiderate to the fact that people that are not in AP(advanced placement) English actually have a brain and choose not to be in AP for one reason or another.(she being the AP teacher of course Noo )

Now there are several people in that class including a few of my friends that are straight A students that chose not to be in AP because our teacher last year completely ruined that experience for us by making us do pointless stuff that did not(i repeat DID NOT) prepare us for this year. (im a junior 11th grade by the way) . So this year my new teacher says "you learned this last year so it should be easy" and all of us are like uhhhhhhhh no.

Ok back on topic about the teacher, junior year is all about grammar for the first semester, and i mean i can stand that topic just enough to ace it, but the way she teaches it just seems pointless. I mean she honestly teaches us like we are a bunch of pre-school rejects that don't know the difference between a noun and a verb. It gets irritating but tolerable. But what really eggs it on is how on our first assignment she actually downgraded the people that did pretty well on it because we weren't in AP. Cuckoo So of course I had to go talk to my counselor because the teacher actually switched me into AP without me knowing it and i got a letter in the mail the next day with my new schedule..... i know confusing right.

After that little extravaganza there is one more point that annoys the living hell outta me and makes me wanna go nutzo on her. Its the fact that if you miss a day in her class she talks down to you when you go get your work in the morning before class. IM SORRY I HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO BUT I AM NOT A 6 YEAR OLD AND DON'T HAVE TO BE SCOLDED LIKE ONE!! (sorry guys brief outburst. )Then she actually talks behind the people's back that aren't there and make them seem like they are stupid for missing her all important god-like rants about how everyone besides a few screwed up the assignment. She has actually called one of my good friends retarted because she missed one simple point on a test Wtf . Out of line yes, made me wanna blow up on her but im a good guy and just set there and took it cause i know that as a head of department the school always listens to her and not her students.

End of rant. sorry it was so long and im glad to be on the forum.

Re: English Teacher = Major Bitch

Wow really?

Would the AP class still be with her?

Also, if it would get you out of that torture I would switch to AP. Just because you have that option.

I gave her wings but she don't wanna fly no more.

Re: English Teacher = Major Bitch

Bring some REALLY complicated book of which you are interested, and then read it in front of her, bonus points if it is on the lesson.

I love when people get angry that you're learning their stuff.

Re: English Teacher = Major Bitch

Can't do that she takes the book and says we should only focus on grammar at this point we are going to focus on writings and literature later next semester. WTF! Wtf

Re: English Teacher = Major Bitch

Kinda remind me of my english teacher last year.
Just be happy that after this year you won't have to deal with her anymore (right?) because my school district changed a lot of stuff and my 7th grade english teacher got moved to the highschool. which means i'll have her another year at some point.
Um, i don't know, maybe like trap her into doing asomething so bad she gets fired?
