Stop suspending and expelling children from school!

Director of Safety and Security in schools, Richard Troupe, says there needs to be a review of the use of suspension and expulsion of school children as a means of discipline.


The call comes amidst concerns from the police about children who are out of school being at greater risk of being recruited by gangs.


During Wednesday’s anti-gang town hall, hosted by the Education Ministry, Detective Inspector Clifton Green of C-TOC, pointed to truancy, suspensions and expulsions, as factors enabling gang activity.



Mr. Troupe said another way must be found to discipline students.
