ABSTRACT
This article presents the author's views on the relevance of student expulsions. Most schools try to retain students even when they realize they are unfit for their institution. Reasons for retaining unsatisfactory students include the belief of teachers that no student is so weak that he can't improve himself, the belief that the dismissal of the boy would brand him as incompetent and the consideration towards the sentiments of the parents of such students. The author thinks that it is vain and selfish for a school to hold a non-willing boy. He should be given the freedom to find a place where he may find satisfaction and success in life.
