Well, if they don't want to suspend them, just kick them out completely. It's not like they are going to graduate, and become productive citizens, anyway.

Keeping them in the classroom, to disrupt the other students, will just further erode our API indexes, the educational process for those students who might actually want to learn, and teachers leaving the profession in droves, in those shitty schools, making ALL the students losers, in the long run.
