Incivility and physical and psychological violence are the main causes of exclusion.
Between September 2020 and June 2021, a school year disrupted by the coronavirus crisis, 939 students were permanently expelled from their school and 548 were unable to re-enroll for disciplinary reasons.
Incivility is the reason most often cited by management to justify the dismissal of a student or a refusal of re-enrolment. They represent 63.35% of cases. Next come psychological violence (36.11%) followed by physical violence (32.48%).
20% of students who were expelled in 2020-2021 were guilty of assault and battery knowingly committed against a student and resulting in an inability to follow lessons and nearly 7% of assault and battery against a member of staff. Cases of racketeering have also been reported. Among the reasons invoked, let us also cite the introduction or possession of a weapon, an instrument or a sharp, blunt or wounding tool, the systematic disruption of classes, the refusal of authority, sexual violence and even arson or attempted arson (2.13% of cases of exclusions).
