Online school has seriously fucked up my life. My mom forces me to do online school even though we have a very safe hybrid schedule where you can go to school. Very little people at my school have gotten the virus yet she still forces me to do online school. I even offered that I could do the state’s online school because I heard that students have more time to do their work. My mom made up an excuse about how if I switched to a different online school I wouldn’t be able to graduate and that the servers for other schools constantly crash. I am forced to do my schools version of online school, which has so far been unprofessional and I’m failing. For example the first day they didn’t tell us how to upload files to a new program that they wanted us to work on. So I just uploaded files like you would normally do. A week later in two classes I had all F’s because the teachers couldn’t open the files. For one class I had to re do all of my projects so I could pass. Another issue is time. They expect online kids to get 6+ hours of work done. For example in my history class we had to watch a two hour movie in one day and answer questions after. They think we devote our whole day to school. My parents are abusive and scream and my mom even tried to run away. She ran away and took me with her the weekend before exams. She ended up going nuts and eventually let me go back home. Of course I wasn’t able to do any of my exams because I was freaking out. I failed two classes because of my parents and the online school not giving enough time and leniency. Another thing, since my parents cause me so much trouble I get anxiety when talking to adults. So this means I have trouble emailing and having meetings with teachers. I have emailed teachers about how I have anxiety emailing and meeting with them yet they say I need to get used to it and get over it. I have multiple panic attacks a day when I have to do a meeting or get an email from a teacher. This causes me to not be able to do work which in turn gives me bad grades. I don’t know what to do, I’m thinking of posting to Reddit about this because there’s really no other places where I can vent and get help. I don’t think anything can change. The only way it could is if my mom lets me go to actual school, which she’s said no to every time I’ve asked. Even after I failed two classes and had panic attacks she doesn’t care.
