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.

My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

Ok.
I can't take it anymore. I just can't.
Why does the school social system have to be so fucking harsh?! Respect and honour is gained by ruthlessly singling out your fellow classmates and bullying them when they have done nothing to you. NOTHING. The saddest part of the matter is, that these bullies seem pretty fucking short of empathy; they don't seem to care in the slightest that they are making people's lives hell, and only because they are different... ok, some people can be very annoying... but, before I say anything else, the thing that sickens me the most is that people don't care. At my school, one boy was so badly bullied, he commited suicide by hanging himself. He had been bullied before he came to the school, true, but something set him off that day; I wasn't in his class, but one of my best friends was, and what happened was that they were both kept back from school, for something the boy (let's call him John) scribbled in a dictionary; he said one of his fellow classmates, who happens to be one of the worst bullies in our year, was gay. BIG FUCKING WHOOP! John and my friend (Murray) were the prime suspects in this shitty little investigation the teacher (Mrs Cunt) had organised. Long story short; by friend told on John and got out of school. What happened next, no one but that shithead teacher knows, but he came back from school that day, and hung himself. Just... wow...
But my school are pretending as though the whole thing didn't happen, and the shits that drove him off the edge (Who are in the year above us, btw) are EXACTLY the same as they were before the incident. Nothing has changed; no one has been punished, and the school are actually refusing to comment on the matter pretty much, at the fear of losing their reputation. My school is actually very well known for the bullying that goes on there, and THIS was meant to be the thing that changed the school. THIS is what should have fired that dumbass teacher, and finally convinced the school to DO SOMETHING ABOUT THOSE POTTHEAD BULLIES!!

ARGH!! Ok, I was so overcome with rage I just HAD to vent. Thank you School Survival, for giving me that chance. I wouldn't mind some feedback; this probably isn't brilliant ude to my anger right now, and the fact that I'm only 13, but whatever. There are so many stories about my shitty school, but I've had it for now.

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

Expose the evidence of suicide to tell the truth of what is the school system is really made of and use the school as a playground for recording embarrassing moment of bullies using camouflauge if needed from blue-green to yellow-green shade since that would allow you to hide in bushes even from colorblind people or people with high color distinguishing easier than with shades of green to yellow green. Also, try to find an place where you can hide your camera to record moments of bullies that can be considered embarrassing. If by any reason, you might be attacked by one of them, then you should team up with others equipped with fighting muscles and bones in order to make the bully feel like shit while striking the cerebral cortex if things gets way too far and the top part of the head hard enough to cause long-term problems so that the bully wouldn't be able to remember the time or even try to bully again.

Always expose the truth. Find a way to get your teacher fired.

ZZZ...

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

Like Carfan said, expose the truth about the suicide. Make a website or a facebook group of the likes to get people on board. It's bullshit the school doesn't take this into account.

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

This is so disgusting that I really don't know what to say. It goes so far beyond what we would normally consider the boundaries of "normal" school-related injustice to the point where it is literally a matter of life and death. They just don't fucking care. They seriously don't. Students are like little fucking vermin to them. Jesus, if you can find a way out of there, do it while you still can.

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

This is what i hate most about schools everywhere, students who die of diseases have letters sent home about them, and are commemorated in the school year book. Suicides are ignored, and their names are wiped inconspicuously off absence lists, and student records.

This system is shit

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

Well, a kid hung himself at my school and they had a moment of silence and a fundraiser for his family. But I didn't know him, so I can't comment on why he did it or whether they covered it up like they did here.

This is probably your best bet to not get it shot down by the school and to do it uncensored, and get more attention.

Now see, this is why my situation sucks so much shit: I did know the guy quite well, and I feel as though it's our duty (me and by other friends, who all knew him actually better than me btw) to do something about the school's inability to admit it was their own fucking fault. But, it happened quite awile ago, TBH: about 4 months, and it feels as though people have just completely forgotten. It sickens me all right, no doubt as much as it sickens you. To quote Martin Luther King:
"Our lifes end the day we become silent about things that matter."
The boy's mother is doing quite a bit behind the scenes, but what needs to happen is that it gets leaked out to the community... what I'm looking for now is a way to do that, but I'm afraid I may have left it a bit late.The boy's father died when the boy was very young, and I have no doubt, NO FUCKING DOUBT, that the school will blame it on that. There was an investigation underway to determine the reason for suicide, but discussion about that at the shithole has become eerily silent. I'm going to ask around in the next few days and find out what the fuck is happening there...

This.

School systems never pay attention to anything that's affecting our personal lives. Teachers expect us to do shitty loads of useless homework no matter what's going on in our lives, how badly we feel, or if someone is hurting us, they just expect us to finish it as if we were emotionless robots who suffer no pain. By all means, try to spread this through the school, and get students to act against the administration and shine a light on how horrible bullies and stuck up perfectionist teachers affects the mental health of students.

Exactly, all we ever hear is how "these poor teachers get so little respect from you, they only want to help you, and you're making their lives worse". What about me, man? What about me? God, I'm sick of this fucking shit!

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

Schools are so horrific.

You send every person above the age of 4 in a building where their thoughts, movements and mind are controlled for 13 years or more until they become "acceptable members of society".

Bullying (from teachers as well), overwhelming amounts of stress and pressure, countless amounts of forced labour and a condensed version of the "real world" make suicide a very unsurprising occurrence, yet the system ignores it. Ignores it like a bug was run over by the storming express train of the education system striving to reach their goal of changing individuals without their regard of their opinions of their own lives.

I can't believe that their isn't more people trying to solve this enormous issue. It seems as though generation Y is more caught up with listening to fucking Lady Ga Ga and reading Twitter posts about someone elses life instead of trying to help themselves out and join a cause. I'm not surprised that many elders aren't impressed with this gen, but to be honest I don't care about impressing some old cunts.

I may be 14 but that doesn't automatically make me a moron, hopefully someday people my age won't be fitted into a stereotype. We really need to start to do something about this bullshit. Like now.

Any who, sorry for taking up your thread with my mumbo jumbo, I'm very sorry for the situation your putting up with.

Re: My school is ignoring SUICIDE!

Yeah its so horrible how schools ignore that crap. Like a year ago a 10 year old kid was found hanging dead in an elementary school in my area. The death was ruled a suicide but a lot of people don't think it was. The school tried to kind of not talk about it. I mean this kid was ten, suicide or not the school should be held at least partly responsible.
