Student expelled from private Halifax college wins court case

March 8, 2010

Last Friday, a Nova Scotia small claims court ruled in favour of a dissatisfied student expelled from the Halifax campus of the Centre for Arts and Technology, a private institution. The student was kicked out last September after he reportedly violated a policy banning students from speaking negatively about the school when he told a pair of prospective students on a campus tour that the centre is a waste of money. The court found the expulsion was unjust because the school did not inform students about such a policy. The school has been ordered to refund the student $15,600 in tuition, and pay $100 in damages.
