When things at school are out of sync

  • This chapter is about school suspension through a social work lens. Young people like Martin require the collective to belong, to be a member of a group, to realise their social needs. This is the basic requirement of human mental and social stability. Suspension stands in opposition because it legitimises social exclusion and disregards the linkage between the individual and collective (Bunge 2003). This chapter advocates for a whole systems approach to tackle social problems and develop sustainable interventions that facilitate young peoples’ needs realisation at school.
