This is The Observer editorial today on the verdicts of the Board of Discipline:
The penalties which the authorities of Liverpool University have visited on ten of their students who took part in a sit-in last term – one expulsion, seven 2-year suspensions and two 1-year suspensions – have aroused a good deal of anger. […]
It is easy for outsiders to take a view on the impropriety of students’ behaviour, but it is much less easy to talk sense on what are appropriate penalties. A university is still meant to be a community: staff and students have to learn to work together; for this, a sense of security and a sense of justice are needed.
