Don’t exclude me, BBC 2 – 9pm Thursday, weekly from tonight.

I was saying that I was having a break today but then something comes on the television that I want to talk about on here. There has to be a reason why more children are being excluded from school nowadays. I’m shocked that primary aged children are getting excluded. I don’t remember that happening when I was at school. I also don’t recall many children at secondary school being excluded either. I was but not until later secondary school years due to my autism related behaviours. Then it continued until basically when I left school. I was suspected as autistic but not officially diagnosed. I didn’t like school because I was picked on and always knew that I was different. I suppose that how I was labelled did become how I see myself. I do have a wall up due to how I was treated growing up. It is important that the children with behaviour problems aren’t damaged by how their treated due to their problems. Those issues are going to be with them for the rest of their lives. Those labels stay with them for the rest of the lives too.
