Why High School Dismissal Should Not Be The End of One’s Education and Career
For many students, high school represents the best time of their lives. However, one moment of misconduct can change that reality forever. Getting dismissed or expelled from high school is a catastrophic event in many young people’s lives. Emotionally draining and time-consuming to remedy, dismissal and expulsion can have long-lasting consequences that affect not just the immediate future but an entire life. Fortunately, a supportive ally specializing in education law can help.
One major reason that teenagers get into trouble is that their brains are still developing fully. Their prefrontal cortex does not finish maturing until they reach their mid- to late-20s. That portion of the brain is responsible for prioritizing tasks, making plans, good decision-making and checking impulsive behaviour. Couple with this, teenagers commonly experience uncertainty and insecurity while forging their identities in competitive environments where conformity is important.
In trying to impress peers or find romance, they may blurt out inappropriate statements or make mistakes driven by curiosity or fear of rejection. They might experiment with drugs or sex or engage in risky behaviours like shoplifting or cutting classes to grab attention. These actions often have relatively mild consequences handed down by parents such as losing cellphone use for weeks at home.
In some cases though, a teenagers bad judgement may escalate to a level beyond suspension raising issues of misconduct which schools must handle appropriately through its administration who may take dubious assumptions as fact because of prior behaviour
False accusations of wrongdoing can arise from idle text messages, tweets taken out of context and Title IX violations against fellow students based on false allegations that come from scenarios where emotions overrule facts; jealousy leads someone to lie about a competition outcome or prejudice prompts someone falsely accuse another person based on perceived differences.
Students accused wrongly find it hard to defend themselves without support from experts in education law with false allegations having immediate negative effects causing disciplinary action that can be too swift and punishing including dismissal, suspension or probation unless they have someone on their side to represent them effectively.
An expulsion or suspension for a student can result in, theoretically embarrassing community perceptions with long-term consequences. Dropping out of high school and turning towards addiction or crime becomes an actual reality for some who lose confidence after being removed. This chain reaction leads to academicians taking a backseat, depriving students of higher education opportunities possibly until they complete courses at the trade school level.
