Students should not be immediately expelled from school for things they do outside of school. If the school is contacted by authorities, then the student should have support from the school to get better. If they refuse help, they maybe asked to leave. If they take the help, then they should have to take online courses on a computer through the school and cannot attend any school functions. Also, once this process is completed, then they are allowed to attend school normally. Teens nowadays have it hard enough. Expelling the students tells them that just because they made one mistake, they aren't good enough for a good education. When schools expel students and have no forgiveness, it decreases their chance of getting into a good college. This is the future generation. In order for them to be successful, we must come together to help teens when they are making the wrong choices.

my opponents facts are undeniably incorrect. He had said that they will just be kicked out of school. However that is not the case anymore the student will be sent to a alternative school now. As per private schools the government cannot make the private schools offer help to the students with substance abuse problems. They also should not because the student can as easily go to a public alternative school. Or go to a rehab centre where they will receive an education while being handled in an environment meant to support the students. My opponent has also stated a very unusual and inexperienced statement on this topic. Being a friend of a substance abuser who has gotten over his problems for the support of his friends these students never wanted to go to school they have always thought that school is worthless. So most of the time when they are offered help they will decline, for they have never wanted to attend school.
