PROBLEMS AT SCHOOL: Stand-downs (Case 1)
Facts: Marie, aged 15 years, has been in trouble at school over the past few weeks. She has been bullying other students and interrupting their learning.
She has been warned by her teachers that, if her behaviour continues, she will be sent home, as bullying is not tolerated, at school.
Today, Marie threatened two other students for their lunch. Once the Principal found out, he sent Marie home on a "stand-down" for 3 weeks (15 days) so she can improve her behaviour.
