They have not reached pre-pandemic levels.

Expulsions and suspensions from secondary schools are on the increase, however they have not reached pre-pandemic levels.

Suspensions increased from just under 5-thousand 300 in 2020-2021, to over 8-thousand 800 the following year.

However, this is still well below the five year average of 12-thousand 600 before Covid.
