Call You & Yours: Curbing the number of pupils who are expelled from school

Listen in pop-out player

The School Exclusions Inquiry report published yesterday says that exclusions are being used too freely. Almost 6,000 children were expelled from state schools in England in 2010/11.

On Call You & Yours Dr Maggie Atkinson will be in the studio and we want to hear what you think.

Are teachers too ready to expel or exclude pupils for minor offences like flouting school uniform rules or dying their hair?

Or do you believe teachers need more help in excluding badly behaved pupils?

Perhaps you agree with today's editorial in the Daily Mail which says the Commissioner's report is misguided, and it hopes Michael Gove throws it - and I quote - straight into the Whitehall bin.
