School suspensions? Are they effective or just give the kid a day off and maybe inconvenience a parent's work schedule?
Personally I don't think they do diddly.

I never saw a point to them. The kids that got them didn't care and usually their parents weren't around (working) or didn't care either. I know if my kid ever got suspended I'd be putting them to work the entire time they would have been in school.
At my high school full on suspension was rare and a last resort before expulsion but it was a Catholic school so the parents were paying tuition and the kids usually didn't get that far without parents cracking down on them. There was lunch detention, after school dentention and then the dreaded Saturday jug where they put you to work cleaning the school for 6 hours on a Saturday. After that was in school suspension which was the same as the jug but you missed class and still had to make up the work.
