    Having taught in a YOI for over nine years, the correlation between being excluded and going to prison is a given (however, I do question the given stats here). Exclusion, nevertheless, is a sociological issue rather than an educational one. This is where we should start.

    You are a drug dealer? LOL
    What are you disagreeing with? Do you think it unlikely that people who behave this way in school might behave this way out.

    Fair enough - missing a comma after experience makes it grammatically ambiguous, if you want to be pedantic. (Easily done on a phone, hence the spelling errors).

    When I said, "They wouldn't be this way in school, but totally different people outside school." - I meant students who are drug dealing, violent criminals behave in the same way in and out of school.

    So the behaviours that see them permanently excluded from school also see them entering the criminal justice system after leaving school.
