Dear Readers, Please check out our new Opinion Poll on Politics and current events should be a part of a school’s curriculum and cast your vote by the end of August 2014. As you know …
your opinion counts
Our July 2014 poll was about whether schools should be allowed to expel students:
Schools should be allowed to expel students, because some students are just intent on disruption and can sometimes become dangerous for other students.
• I agree. Schools should be allowed to expel students, because sometimes coming down hard on difficult children is the only way to make them realise the seriousness of their misbehaviour. (42%, 17 Votes)
• I disagree. Schools should not expel students. Moving a difficult child to another school does not deal with the problem and merely passes the buck. Expulsion further scars difficult children. (58%, 23 Votes)
Those who voted that schools should not be allowed to expel students, led this opinion poll with 58% of the votes. These voters believe that schools that do expel students are in effect just passing the problem onto another institution, instead of dealing with it. On the other hand those who believe that schools should be allowed to expel students trailed behind with 42% of the votes. These people believe that some difficult students just want to cause disruption and keeping them enrolled in the school can sometimes become dangerous.
