Cannabis Boy To Get Compensation


Recommended Posts

A Devon boy expelled from school for selling cannabis is to receive £1,500 in compensation from a council.

The Local Government Ombudsman ruled that Torbay Council was guilty of maladministration in its slowness to find a new school for the Year-10 boy.


He said the money was not a reward but that failure to find a school and teach him at home properly caused injustice.


The authority admitted it was unable to find alternative provision as quickly as it should have done.
