Does Suspending Students From The Class Work?

The college and faculty should devise a program that lets students freely interact with the teaching staff about their concerns as SUSPENSION of students is not at all a solution

Some BBA colleges believe that suspending students from class instils discipline
and in return changes their behaviour. However, this approach is not the right way to
fix problems. Especially, when they have just entered adulthood and are on the
verge of either making or breaking their life. Faculty members should try and dig out
the reason that’s triggering inappropriate behaviour in students. The questions they
need to ask themselves is why they are not learning and why they are showcasing a
weird behaviour. Faculty members must understand that suspension does not fix
behavioural issues, it often makes it worse. For example, MBA, B. Tech and BBA subjects are comprehensive and suspending a student from any of the classes will
make them lose interest in the particular subject. This loss of interest will hamper
grades as the student will not be able to cover the losses due to suspension.

How To Understand the causes of inappropriate behaviour

Faculty members must understand the cause behind inappropriate behaviour with an
aim to guide the students. Behavioural issues can be because of multiple reasons,
some of them include:
 Frustration due to inability to understand the subject
 They are made to feel inadequate
 Unintentionally or intentionally students/teachers are picking on them
 Their efforts are not appreciated
 Biased behaviour of faculty (favouritism)

Suspension may lead to depression.

Let’s look why suspension does not work if the student is under any of the above-
mentioned mental state.

Decreased Confidence

With every suspension, students start losing confidence and start believing they are
good for nothing. Even if they wish to give a genuine try, the thought of another
suspension keeps them away from attending classes. Furthermore, they also start
feeling humiliated in front of those who never get suspended and score well. Instead
of suspension, the faculty should sit and have a weekly session with rule-abiding
students to understand what leads to such behavioural issues.

Increased Rebellious Attitude

Faculty members must understand that repeat suspensions instil a rebellious attitude
in students and they might skip the classes for the entire semester. The approach
will not only affect their attendance but their grades as well. The higher the number
of suspensions the lower the scores. Thus, the faculty should maintain a low rate of
suspensions to have no impact on the scores and performance of the suspended
students.

They Become Habitual

The faculty members think that suspension is one of the best ways to handle
disciplinary actions. It might be true in some cases, but one of the most significant
disadvantages it carries with itself is that students become habitual of the suspension. Instead of taking it as a punishment for their betterment, they start
looking forward to suspension so that they can have a great time loitering around the
campus or chilling with friends in the canteen. Here again comes the importance of
maintaining a low rate of suspensions for effective results.

A Close Look at Suspensions

Though suspension seems to be the right choice to change a student’s behaviour, is
the result even effective? Do students fear the suspension? Do they feel sorry about
being regularly suspended? Well, these are the questions faculty members should
keep in mind before they go ahead and suspend any student. As a solution, they
should make the students understand that all this is being done with an aim to help
them. The college and faculty should devise a program that lets students freely
interact with the teaching staff about their concerns. That is the key. Students should
feel that they are an essential part of the education system – they should feel
wanted.
