Pro

Students should get banned from school for bullying, bullying causes people to have low-self-esteem or either commit suicide and it's not fair.

Con

The Pro claims that because suicide can lead to a variety of health problems, including depression, self-esteem issues, and suicidal thoughts, "[bullying's] not fair" and, thus, students should be expelled from school. However, in the United States, all states have some form of an educational clause, a clause in a state's constitution that requires all state governments to "make ample provision for the education of all children residing within its borders, without distinction or preference on account of race, color, caste, or sex"[1]. While this might not be true for private schools because they are not federally funded, in public schools, you cannot be deprived of your inalienable right to education.
Instead, the Con suggests that more emphasis be placed onto preventing negative behavior and supporting the bullied individual. For example, school counseling can be used as an approach to inhibit bullying through assessing a potential cause, as well as being able to "Work together to resolve the situation and protect the bullied child"[2].
While the Con does hope that bullying in schools can be diminished, considering that 28% of 6th-12th graders reported being bullied[3], because of the educational clause, we do not believe that students should be "banned from school."
