White boys excluded from Glasgow schools more often than girls

Article here. Excerpt:

'The majority of children being excluded from Glasgow schools are white boys, a council meeting heard today.

Kids with additional support needs are also more likely to be affected, but the numbers of kids being excluded overall is decreasing every year in the city.

One councillor asked: “What’s happening with our boys?”

Glasgow council education boss Maureen McKenna said: “The challenge for us is white young men - white boys. They are our challenge in terms of those who are affected by exclusion. At secondary you are much more likely to be excluded if you are white.”

Speaking at the council education skills and early years city policy committee today, she added: “If you have additional support needs you are more likely to be excluded.”'
