Homepage of National School Safety and Security Service stated that, expelling “give students more breaks” (17) than they should get for vocation. The students are wasting time, roaming on streets when they are supposed to be in school learning. The more and frequent the students get expel, the less they are interested in school. Those who always want to ditch school are now find an easy way to ditch school. All they have to do is say something about violations and they will get expel right away. How cool it is for them? Another good point made by An Education Dept. is that “the loss of classroom time worsens a student’s academic.” To clarify this, here is the example. A Teacher cannot go back to the lesson that she taught yesterday to teach the lesson again on particular student who missed school. This is impossible. If the students get expelled or suspended for 3 days or a week, it is hard for him to catch up with missing assignments. This will leads students to stress and depression that will eventually make the students want to stop learning. Another example is that the student who always ditch school seems to do badly on tests so their grades are not impressive. In the same way, it applied to the student who always get suspended from school. His/her grade will drop dramatically even if he/she was straight “A”
