Zero Tolerance: Balancing an Uncertain Expulsion Policy
The article tests the common understanding of zero tolerance expulsion policies and in doing so balances the manner in which the policy is being implemented with the role of the Federal Courts as the arbitrator of disputes arising out of the use of the policy as a deterrent. The authors identify the important issues, review recent legal challenges and offer analysis of the implications for school administrators.
