The recent school brawls in Suva has forced the Ministry of Education to review and reinstate the expulsion law into the academic system once again.

Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Education, Dr Brij Lal confirmed to FijiLive that Minister for Education, Filipe Bole has given him and the ministry the directive to work and consult with various stake holders on the explusion law before submitting a proposal to government for its reinstatement.

“A directive has been given by the Minister to look into the expulsion law for students who usually get involved in brawls and currently we are doing as suggested by the Minister to revive the expulsion in schools,” Dr Lal said.

Meanwhile, four students from Marist Brothers High appeared in the Magistrates Court in Suva and Valelevu last week for instigating brawls with students from Suva Grammar School on two separate occasions.
