I never thought I'd say this, but this page is FAR to "British-centric", defining the title "principal" by referring to "headteacher"! Besides that there is a load of the second person and other things. 03:25, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

I am one of the editors which have written some of the page, I have added a couple of sources published by the UK goverment which state the rules. I think that to state that the article is too "British-centric" is unreasonable. The "USA-centric" version was written in a much more informal manner, having a working knowlege of the UK system I wrote a section on the UK system and then improved the US section by adding a reference to one education system in the states. It would be best if a teacher or governor from the US (or some other part of the world) would add new sections for other school systems.

Also User: needs an extra english lesson to cure his misuse of written english, to is the word which sounds like the number 2 which is used when one writes "Luke went to the football match", while too is the word used when one writes "Luke stayed out too late".Cadmium

We aren't quite that strict. For example possesion of very small knives or of look alike weapons will only get you suspended, fighting usually merits an ISS {AKA exclusion from the rest of the school}, and, if you go to rehab, you won't get expelled until your 3rd alchohol offense or your 2nd drug offense.

The first time verbal sexual harrasment is used, its usually a 5 day suspension. Constant profanity only gets you detention until the 3rd offense in which case you get ISS and after that an alternate education program (transfer to a remediation class or something) FinalWish 02:08, 30 August 2007 (UTC)


There's a blank sectionEdit

Either fill the Famous Expulsions section, or delete that section. Mydoctor93 (talk) 09:50, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Academic failureEdit

This article does not mention academic (scholastic) failure as grounds for expulsion. In some private schools, such failure is grounds for expulsion (or having to leave the school permanently). H Padleckas (talk) 13:19, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

"sent down"Edit

"sent down" redirects to expulsion. since in the british context I have only ever heard of this used in regards to Oxford/cambridge universities and private schools shouldnt there be an explanation for the redirect or a small page? in a state school or university the term expulsion would always be used.

At the very begining of the article, it shows the word "withdrawing" as another word for expulsion; isn't withdrawing when a student voluntarily moves from an institution? (talk) 06:21, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

I don't remember ever contributing to this article, but I have a passing interest in the topic, and I thought your question was worthy of a quick search, for your observation certainly seemed reasonable. "Other parents have indicated that instead of expelling students, some schools have simply adopted an informal “push out” policy. Reportedly, parents have been called into the school to discuss their children’s behavior; upon arriving they were presented with a pre-completed withdrawal form, asked to sign and find a “more suitable school” for their children." Emphasis added by me. Gzuufy (talk) 00:22, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
