School Exclusion: To Exclude Or Not To Exclude? A Critical Consideration of a Range of Perennial Issues

Abstract

This paper reviews the notion of school exclusion. The use of narrative, biographical research has been employed to find out the feelings of children who has been excluded from school. Moreover, alternative perspectives were gained as I interviewed staff at the school about the exclusion process. Issues such as why an exclusion may be beneficial and why on the other hand it may not be of benefit will be considered. Logistical issues such as childcare and the holistic wellbeing of students and practitioners will be addressed.

Keywords: Exclusion, School, perennial issues
