A good question. I personally dont use ideas like "rights" very often. The problem when talking about rights is one of balance as usual, and also as usual, any group of people who are not properly overseen with appropriate checks and balances frequently get it wrong.
From my point of view, it is a combination of:
1) Nowhere else to put disruptive child.
2) Need to meet gvt targets, which whilst by themselves seem quite good, overall have a deleterious effect.
3) Their parents will possibly kick up a fuss, and you probably have a rought idea how many parents believe their little angels can do no wrong.
4) Poor headteachering.
