- Months after being expelled by Xavier, Maryland basketball player Dez Wells said Tuesday that he finally feels a sense of relief because he has arrived in a place that feels like "home. " "I had faith I would be in the best situation possible at the end of the road. And I feel like I'm in the best situation," Wells said in his first interview with local media since transferring to Maryland this summer. "I feel a lot of relief. It's home away from home. " The 6-foot-5 Wells, who can play guard or small forward, was dismissed by Xavier following his freshman season after a sexual-assault allegation that a prosecutor said was unproven.

A year after the U.S. Naval Academy expelled seven midshipmen for using synthetic marijuana on the zero-tolerance Annapolis campus, the "spice" investigation is over, and college officials say the drug problem is past. Sixteen midshipmen were expelled from the academy for use or possession of synthetic marijuana between December 2010 and August 2011, when the formal investigation ended. Only one midshipman has been investigated for spice since, said Cmdr. William Marks, academy spokesman.

A fourth Long Reach High School student has been expelled in connection with a violent campus attack in October that left a 12th-grader with a fractured jaw, a school official said yesterday.The expelled student, whose name was not released because of his age, is a 14-year-old ninth-grader who was initially suspended Nov. 5, said Patti Caplan, a Howard County school spokeswoman. He was expelled 12 days later and charged with second-degree assault, she said.Although as many as seven boys were accused of beating and kicking Kenny Magan, 17, in a school hallway, it seems unlikely that more students will be punished in the incident, Caplan said.

Birk Billingsley knew the price of his free Naval Academy education. It required adherence to all the dos and don'ts. Still, last fall, the 22-year-old senior engaged in a don't. He got caught and had to head home to Texas. He would have graduated in six weeks. Instead, he owes the Navy $93,000 for his education. "I made a big mistake," he says. After 22 coed years, the academy still struggles to regulate the urges of college-age men and women. Despite the rules -- no sex with a freshman, no sex on campus -- midshipmen regularly fall in love, have sex and sometimes get caught.

The state school board's plan to substantially reduce the number of school suspensions and expulsions is based on faulty logic ("State wants to curb suspensions," Jan. 26). The board says expulsions should be eliminated except in cases of firearm violations. This absurd policy would force teachers, counselors and other students to endure out-of-control minors with little to no ability to rectify the situation. Suspension should be used to remove minors who refuse to follow the rules.

"Students aren't allowed to pray any more!" "You can't even talk about God in public schools these days!" "They've even banned Christmas!" Such refrains, which resound regularly each year, are gross misconceptions perpetuated by alarmists who question America's First Amendment guarantees regarding religion's and prayer's place in public schools. The approach of major religious holidays is a wonderful opportunity to clarify what is religiously allowable within our public schools.

Baltimore's school board voted 5-2 Tuesday night to adopt a policy that allows students to be permanently expelled for setting fires or other violent acts that threaten the safety of staff and students. The vote came after months of public comment and haggling over the details of the policy. In the end, the board and schools CEO Andr?s Alonso compromised. Alonso retained his authority to permanently expel students, but under more narrow circumstances and with a greater weight given to the student's home life and experiences, and right to due process.

Some kids will do almost anything to get out of fourth period algebra class or a tough history exam. But planting a bomb in the building or setting the place on fire crosses a line separating stupid teenage pranks from serious criminal behavior that puts hundreds of lives at risk. There's no excuse for it, and it can't be tolerated. That's why Baltimore City Schools chief Andres Alonso is right to draw the line at students who commit arson or detonate explosives on school grounds, even if it has led to a spike in permanent expulsions, including one elementary school student.

A former midshipman who was expelled from the Naval Academy for failing a running test by 20 seconds has met with a new hurdle in repaying the $127,000 cost of his education: an additional $38,000 in late fees and penalties. Frank Shannon racked up the charges while waiting for the secretary of the Navy to decide his fate, including the three months that the office misplaced his appeal letter. The latest bill, sent last week by the U.S. Treasury Department, has outraged Shannon and his family.

One hundred students on long-term suspension or expulsion will attend a new alternative school located within the city school system's North Avenue headquarters when classes resume Aug. 25, under a move approved last night. The school board's vote to allow the school to operate within the administration building was practical and symbolic. On the practical side, the system is eliminating 310 central office jobs this summer, leaving space in the building. But there is also no shortage of symbolism in placing some of the city's most vulnerable students alongside the administrators acting on their behalf.
