Exclusions right and sometimes wrong

I love the idea of "wrongful" exclusions ("Teen appeals put teachers at risk of false claims", August 28) - as if schools decide to pick students at random, or as if a bright, hardworking and polite student is removed. They may be "wrongful" in that the paperwork has not been filled in properly, but I've never heard of a case in which the student did not actually deserve the exclusion. In my experience, schools and decent students usually put up with far more incidents of poor, violent or abusive behaviour over a much longer period than should be expected.
