Why much-praised KIPP D.C. expels kids - Class Struggle - The Washington Post


We haven't talked specifically about charter schools yet in the School and Society class, but I'm posing these questions for discussion: Charter schools usually have much more power and flexibility to expel a student for misbehavior than a regular public school. Expulsion can be tricky because, legally, the child is still required to attend a school, which is why D.C. usually relies on "involuntary transfers." Under what conditions do you think it's fair to expel a student, and is it fair for different kinds of schools to have different powers to expel?
