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.

Quote:"I think the law does do good," she said. "Kids want to skip all of the time and not go to school. If their parents don't say anything, the law should."

No shit? People don't like school? Gee, that's new. We must obviously remedy this by revoking driving licences. That'll show those darn kids. Especially ones who drive to school.

Texas does that shit to, really sucks.

Re: Florida takes away driver licenses for not going to school?

All I can think of at the moment for them is simply FUCK YOU. The question they wouldn't answer right and they would answer me is the attitude problem is why would the fuck I want to go back into an place that lead me to serious emotional problem? For some teenagers, it better for them to stay out of school than to stay in school in the long run.

Oh dear, another inhumane authoritarian approach of enforcing attendance at School.

Georgia's already been doing this. It's partly why I don't have a license.

That is one of the most stupid things i have heard recently. What if kids need to drive to school?

I wonder how much this screams "unconstitutional". Probably a lot.

Eh, lawmakers don't really care much about the constitution anymore. They can just twist it to suit their needs. Example:

"Well, it says freedom of speech."
"Shut up you jew, it means freedom of speech only in certain circumstances. What if a negro gets offended?!?! We must ban this atrocity!"

Who am I? Who are YOU?

Free speech huh.

Re: Florida takes away driver licenses for not going to school?

Yeah, I've thought for a while that for a country that prides itself on freedom the US has shockingly little.

oh and also No one has any rights. We're free, rights create invisible restrictions. But we live in a society where the majority accepts rights to be true.
