Is their long term impact on society better or worse, and if worse does it outweigh the positive impact their absence has on the other students. Is there anything that can be done to change things is their impact is worse?
First, I think it should be impossible to get kicked out of school unless you are in jail. Now, absolutely the disruptive kids should be removed from class, but life should get WORSE for them. Go to the local ironworkers union and hire a few of guys and there knew education protocol is busting their ass for 10 hours a day. Life cannot get better for kids when they misbehave. They are too stupid to be thinking about the long term implications. Bad behavior has to lead to short term hardship.

Another failed appeal to authority.
You know who worship the dollar. Those that wish to take it from others from their personal benefit.
Thou shall not steal. I think the Pope forgot that commandment. There is no fine print on the stone that says it's not stealing if blessed by government.
Sure we have murderers and all kinds of sinners and greed being one of them, but the reason we are so successful on average is because we are not greedy. It is the people looking to get rich quick that go broke more often. It is those that want money, but don't want to work that have the least. It's those that know why they need money to care for others that have more and those that are self-centered and short-sighted who have the least.
The pope has so much wrong. It's not the first time a pope has been very wrong, is it? Sorry, but a failed appeal to authority.
But I know your liberal jealous makes you think those that have more must have done something wrong. Even if so, can you legislate morality? And that includes high tax rates. Every dollar should be taxed the same.
