As the school phrases it , my son is "a bad kid". Can't choose his friends but I am against most of the kids he is hanging out with. As a parent what control should I have over this? What actions can be taken? Can anything be done without taking him out of that school,Even though removing him and placing him in a new environment is what I think may help. He idolizes friends but they are nothing but trouble. Brushes with the law and may be doing drugs!!

What does your question have to do with being displeased with his school? You need to focus on your displeasure with your son and your displeasure with his choice of friends. You can police who he hangs out with after school. You can monitor his phone, computer, text, etc. You can be his parent. He may also need some help in the "how to make nice friends" department. If you send him to another school he will probably attract the same type of kids again. The change has to come from within him.

It doesn't sound like the school is the issue. The school can't be blamed for who he chooses to be friends. Can you move away from the area? Even if he changes schools, he'll keep those nasty friends.
