You are right. I've gone about this all very poorly. I'm sorry.

The first expulsion was in second grade. I was suspended often in second grade (often 0 day suspensions),
Possible trigger:


The second expulsion in third grade was due to the sadism of a teacher, who imposed various 'requirements' on me. Example: My pencils would be confiscated when we were supposed to write our journals, then she'd humilate me in front of the class for being a 'monster.' If I reacted, I'd be disciplined. Didn't last long. I stopped being functional, I was reduced, so she confiscated my pencil for journal as she usually did, told the class I tried to stab her with it, and I was expelled. She had already done the same to seven other students by the time she did that to me.

In community college, I was suspended for a semester for calling the textbooks a racket after to a change in a textbook that cost $200 more and included McGraw Hill's horrible online software. (My father is a professor and in the past was reprimanded because he worked a deal with a textbook author to provide free online copies to students, instead of having them pay $400 for the previous edition of the textbook. 'The college' explained that they had to pay the $400 in order to keep the cost of tuition low.) When I arrived in my Calculus II class the next morning at 8:00, I was approached by the police who escorted me to a school counselor who told me "you know what you did" and "we can't tell you what you did" and "if you do it again you will be expelled." I really pressed the counselor for the reason I was brought in, but they refused to tell me. I was not allowed to leave his office until I logged into my student services and drop all my classes. They said I would not be able to attend the school again until I had a psychiatric evaluation to determine if I was dangerous. Everything the school did to me in that office is illegal, yet it happened. My requests for access to my files per FERPA were systematically ignored. Outside of the tuition costs, I had to pay for the evaluation out of pocket - the evaluation was awful and traumatizing on it's own right. Why? Why all of this? Apparently a textbook representative who was introducing the McGraw Hill software heard me and reported me. And this was my punishment for a snide comment to a peer. I graduated a semester late. My grades were poor at this school after this happened, but not beforehand.

At the college I attended immediately afterward, I was a semester away from graduation, on the dean's list' and had just completed my thesis. The professor gave me a high 'F,' calling me a Walter Kaufman parody among other things - but I passed the Thesis class with a C (the only C I had at that school.) I complained. I appealed the grade, but in the meeting with the Dean I was told to "shut up or be indefinitely suspended" - instead of being a discussion about the appeal. In asking about what this was about, I was again told the same old lines "you know what you did" etc. I agreed to shut up, they suspended me indefinitely anyways - a defacto expulsion.



And now this whole thing is happening again. Why wouldn't it be happening again? Am I going to be kicked out again? And from elementary to school to university, all that is said is "oh, so you think they're out to get you." or "oh, you think it's some kind of conspiracy." Is it? Am I insane? What is wrong with me? It's just a boot kicking my face to the curb again and again senselessly.



The problem with credits is all the transfers between schools and the fact that degree requirements vary between schools. For example, This new school has three general education categories needing to be filled because the previous several schools didn't have those same categories. One of those is Introduction to Ethics. I've already completed my Thesis for this school, I resubmitted the same thesis from my previous school and got an A+ on it.
