Just a quick question, how can someone both graduate with their class and be expelled at the same time?
School board attorney Lawrence Weiner said they would be expelled but the school would freeze their grades at their previous levels instead of automatically flunking them.
“They’ll graduate with their class,” he said.
According to one definition, expelled is to deprive someone of membership. So, if you deprive the students of membership, they shouldn’t be able to graduate with their class. Therefore, they can’t truly be expelled in this case or they can’t graduate with their class. The deal, from a logical point of view, makes no sense.
