Zurich city council has approved tougher measures for unruly school kids, allowing them to be expelled for up to three months.

The new sanctions will be applied by schools in cases where pupils' behaviour is considered unacceptable, the daily newspaper 20 Minuten said.

Up to now, unruly students could be expelled only for a maximum of four weeks. During this break, they are taught classes and are supported through education programs, the Zurich city council ruled.

As part of the measures, even the parents – who authorities say have not fulfilled their obligations in their children’s education – must attend parent education courses.
