With multiple reports of controversy surrounding George Santos, a local high school student, the school administration has officially declared that he would be expelled from the school. Most of the students and teachers in the school have always had a hard time with the behavior of George Santos. His failure to obey instructions, his insolent attitude towards the teachers as well as the physical bullying of his fellow students has led to his expulsion. Despite his poor record at school, his expulsion has raised several questions regarding the impact such a move may have on other students in the school. Aside from this, his expulsion also raises the question of whether it is even possible to stop a student from repeating problematic behavior if they are removed from the school environment. The school administration fear that his expulsion may set a terrible precedent. Even though he was undoubtedly damaging the school environment, if the school enacts such unforgiving rules now, other students might be scared into obedience, which will in the long run harm both them and the school. The alternative to his expulsion could have predictably been some strong words from the mentor, suspension of classes for a certain duration, or even counseling sessions to help alleviate the issue. However, some teachers and his immediate peers traffic views that his behavior was beyond reasoning and was a reflection of his upbringing, which helps explain his avidly reckless actions. The general consensus among his immediate peers and teachers is that his expulsion could have been avoided if his parents and the school had taken more drastic steps to educate and nurture him. Both the school and the parents would need to shoulder the blame for his reckless behavior. At the end of the day, no matter the reason or the level of consequences, it is a disheartening situation for everyone involved. And while it is hard to say with certainty if this move will set a dangerous precedent, it is hard to ignore the fact that there might be a giant risk in letting it perpetuate.
