What Can I Do?

Post by Bummerdout06 » Sat Jul 19, 2003 8:37 am

*sigh* :'( I go to a expensive private school and am going into 10th grade and have been there since 6th. I don't know how we ever had enough money to go, it gets more and more expensive every year we go, and last year my sister, who is going into 6th grade, came. so the cost is even worse. i don't really want to keep going to my school, but i'm comfertable there. my friends are..are ok. but i'm not too happy there, but then again i don't want to leave.



my parents are haveing major trouble paying, i found out we are really really behind. about 63,000 behind and if we don't pay by time school starts (aug. 20) then i can't go. which isn't good. my mom is in a type of denial thing. they don't want me to go to the city public school (which is where i would go if i didn't pay to go to school) both my parents both hate that school. but i might end-up going there if my parents don't pay. my friend is going there this year which i dont' mind going to because of it. but my parents (especially mom) are being completely stupid. From where i'm standing i'm not going to my private school, and they need to open up, get to know the school, ect. they are kind of in a type of denial. i don't know what to do. I'm not aloud to talk to them about it because i'm not suppose to know. but they need stop being stubern. my friend's mom is talking to them, but again they won't listen, they are being STUPID! any help. (i am NOT suppose to know this so can't mention it.) should i just talk to my friend? and get her mom to tell my mom what she needs to do? and get her mom to call and get me an interview at that school, so incase i have to go i am ready??? please help, my mom is being completely stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I go to a private school too and I understand how you feel, my dad wants me to leave and do 6th form (last year) at a public school when we know that doesn't work for me. But I suppose if your parents can't pay there isn't much you can do about it, and the best thing to do is have a positive attitude and support them because they obviously don't want to see this happen either. You said you didn't really want to keep going and were hesitant to say your friends were ok... Why not treat moving to a new school as an oppotunity to start over again and get a new circle of friends that are better than ok.



I say keep supporting your parents, because it isn't something they are doing deliberately and probably feel just as bad as you about it. You should just talk it over with them, just say 'I know theres something going on about my school, whats wrong?' You have a right to know :)

i'm not aloud to mention anything,it could ruin a friendship between my mom and my friends mother. which isn't good. its not the leaving part that bothers me. its my parents are being stupid and ignoring the fact that i might not beable to go this year and it doesn't seem like they are doing anything about it. they are being stuborn. but getting my friends mom to make an appointment to see the school a good idea?? ok thanks

Yeah, and I'm not even a mod.
To feel the wind tearing at my clothes, the elements.

The only truth left in a world of lies and hypocrisy.

The beauty of the abyss.

The anticipation, like anticipating the greatest sex, an existential foreplay.

Looking down into oblivion and voidness.

The ground far, far away as it seems from here, but in reality only a couple of seconds away.

Standing there.

Feeling eternity in a restricted world.

Feeling a decision in a prefabricated existence.

All Hara-Kiri meant was this topic should be in the general school forum :)



The best thing you can do is talk to them. They need to start doing something soon - Remember this is your future.

but i can't talk to them. i'm not even suppose to know! i did email my friend about asking her mom to make an appointment or whatever (but i don't think she knows i know either) but seriously, i'm not suppose to know. if i was aloud to ask them i would of done it in a heart beat.. i know its my future, but i don't really have a choice in schools w/ them. if i had a choice of schools, i would never of gone to the private school, but stayed in public.

Have you checked on scholarships, work study, or other financial aid opportunities? My school had a lot of opportunities for people to go, even if they didn't have the money.
