Where students are violent, suspensions may be justified, in order to ensure the safety of other students.
However, for non-violent behaviour, what regulations are in place with regards to suspension, and what recourse do students (or their parents) have?
Surely, if a student is entitled to an education by means of some statute or regulation, withholding it needs to be statutorily or regulatorily sanctioned?
This relates specifically to the United States; I imagine states will have different regulations, so please answer with whatever jurisdiction(s) you are comfortable with. If you also have experience with other jurisdictions, that would be interesting.
