Expel George Santos? Some fear terrible precedent despite his terrible record

Expulsion is the most serious disciplinary action a school can take against a student. It is very rare for a student to be expelled for their record, and recommending such a course of action can set a dangerous precedent for students in the future.

Therefore, it is important to thoroughly assess all other disciplinary actions before considering expulsion. In the case of George Santos, it is important to review his disciplinary record and history of offenses carefully. It may be necessary to involve other school officials and counselors in order to assess his risk to others and the impact of his behavior on the learning environment.

Based on this assessment, further disciplinary action could be taken. This could include more severe punishments such as suspension or a behavioral contract. If he fails to adhere to the disciplinary action, then expulsion may be a viable option. It should only be used as a last resort.
