Over the years, QAI has developed significant concern regarding the extent to which some students, particularly students with disability, receive School Disciplinary Absences (SDAs). SDAs include suspension, exclusion and the cancellation of enrolment following instances of behaviour that a school deems to be unacceptable.

QAI has written a discussion paper for Community Resource Unit’s most recent newsletter, highlighting some of the systemic issues involved.
