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.

My science teacher's wisdomly mustings

Quote:Learning is one of the great joys in life.
Quote:Because of their experiences with many teachers, students are experts on what works and doesn't work in school. Therefore they should have a say in how the class operates.
Quote:When people are forced to do what they don't want to do, unwanted consequences happen.
Quote:Teaching does not cause learning. Grades do not cause learning. The desire to learn causes learning.
Quote:Since every person learns in a unique way, students should have a lot of choice in how they learn. Since every person has different needs and motivation, we shouldn't always do the same thing at the same time.
Quote:If we are going to minimize the institutional rules that make school feel like a machine, we are going to have to boost the amount of mutual trust and respect we give each other.
Quote:Since students know themselves better than a teacher can ever know them, they should be largely responsible for their own learning. It's also good practice for life.

I wish we had teachers like that here. The teachers over here are all either incompetents or fascists.

The only good signature is a dead signature.

This, and those quotes should be put in the quote archive on the site.

Re: My science teacher's wisdomly mustings

Don't really agreed with the 4th quotes, but the rest of the quote gives me lots of respect for the teacher. I wanna interview her and talk to her.

Why do you disagree with #4, and why do you assume he/she's a woman?

Re: My science teacher's wisdomly mustings

Oh sorry about the woman part, I seen so many teacher that are female. The main reason I disagree is that there are certain situations and certain places where you don't wanna know who they or where you are and it turns out that you learn it even though you have no desire to do so. Teaching does help even though you have no desire to learn it in some cases. Maybe not good reason, but think yourself in the past of bad memories and you'll see why I disagree. The grades part is the only thing I agree with.

Re: My science teacher's wisdomly mustings

I like my science teacher, if you just shut the fuck up he teaches you a million things that don't fit in with the syllabus, that are infinitely more useful than the things in the syllabus, while teaching you the syllabus. It's fucking amazing.

Oh yeah, and I'm top in science. I wonder why Rolleyes .

Re: My science teacher's wisdomly mustings

For newfags, I'm the OP.

Anyways, my science teacher is leaving this Wednesday and won't be back until the end of May due to the fact that he just had his first son. Class is going to suck. He was the coolest teacher ever. My friends and I played Halo and Call of Duty with him over Xbox Live. He was really laid-back and would play Pink Floyd from his computer whenever we were working on stuff. It's too bad he's leaving.

Re: My science teacher's wisdomly mustings

I have three science teachers, because I took Tripe Science.

Chemistry Teacher isn't bad. Yeah, he does rocket through the stuff at about a hundred miles and hour and sometimes I'm like "wat" before he moves on to another subject, but he does cool experiments (last lesson he sprayed a bunch of solvents on to a Bunsen Burner and we were like OMG) so that makes up for it I guess.

Biology's method of teaching is meh, but virtually every boy in our class thinks she's p. hot and to be honest I would have to agree with them.

Physics is the worst. She makes the subject ludicrously boring, plus I'm sat next to a bunch of dicks.
