Exclusions from Schools in England With a focus on exclusions for drug and alcohol related reasons
What is the relationship between exclusion and drug use?
Smoking, drinking and drug use among young people in England in 2010:
“ Pupils who had truanted or been excluded from school were more likely to report usually taking drugs at least once a month, the measure of frequent drug use, than those who had never truanted nor been excluded (8% and 1% respectively)... In 2010, of those pupils who had ever truanted or been excluded, 9% had taken any Class A drugs in the last year, compared with 1% who had never truanted or been excluded from school.”
