Getting suspended is bad, I think she's lucky not to have been expelled. I think our school allows three suspensions before they expel them for the year.

If you're trying to figure out if you should punish her when she gets suspended: absolutely. And it needs to be unpleasant, not like a vacation from school.

Getting good grades is very important, but there may come a time when she can't keep up with the work, or she could get expelled.

Grades aren't everything. Good grades when you are acting like a little shit is not going to save you from being suspended. Clearly, to be suspended 10 times, she has been doing some serious misbehaving.

So what was your question?
