Headlining the Saturday edition of The Guardian, 'Dozens of secondary schools exclude at least 20% of pupils'. Obviously, the reasons behind this are many and varied.Any ideas? Why is behaviour getting so bad ? I personally feel that the exam factory syndrome is a major factor, along with squeezed resources. An inappropriate curriculum for many, with continual targets, has made school irrelevant and stressful. Dealing with poor behaviour is part of the job but these figures point to chaotic and unmanageable schools.
