The Victorian Ombudsman has commenced an own-motion investigation into school expulsions – details here.

In a joint submission with the Victorian Student Representative Council, Youth Disability Advocacy Service and Koorie Youth Council, YACVic argues for comprehensive, accessible data on expulsions; adequate support for all schools to engage all students meaningfully in their own education and work appropriately with students experiencing trauma and mental illness; and expert support for all students facing expulsion to help them re-engage with education, training and employment.
