Different strokes they say are for different folks. In the part of Nigeria where I grew up, what could have been recommended for emulation has been seen as being an obsession in another part of the world.
18 year old Gagliardi has been expelled from Ifield Community College in southern England, subsequently handed over to the police for refusing to leave the library.
The school accused him of being too obssesed studying and constituting a nuisance
He said “I have been punished for wanting to do well. I am a hardworking and a dedicated student, and this could have such an impact on my future.”
Marilyn Evans, director of school administration, said: “He became loud and angry that he could not study after school.”
The student went to the library despite being banned from the premises for the day as punishment for disrupting the school principal during a meeting to request special meetings.
Gagliardi is described as the “best student”, who wants to do well on tests, but had been “causing a nuisance and a disturbance on the property.” The school authorities added that “He is obsessed with making the revision after school.”
A police spokesman confirmed that officers were called to the school to remove a “disruptive” student who refused to leave the premises, but said Gagliardi will not face charges.
