Well i know that the public system really has to jump through hoops and loads of red tape to deal with serial offenders.
Our public primary had a big issue a few years ago with an older boy - there was violence toward a teacher and other students involved and it took nearly a whole year of the department trying different avenues to get some resolution which was also hindered by parents not accepting the boys issues.
The boy was excluded at the end of last year, however he was asked to leave 2 private schools with in a year before coming to our public school.
Public schools really do have their hands tied when it comes to extreme circumstances.
