After Mr. Keating left the room, all the boys who stood up got expelled. There were only 7 boys left in that class. The boys who got suspended were sent to other private schools, or as in Knox’s case a public school, (where Chris attended). Their parents cut their children some slack now because they felt that Neil’s parents were to blame for his cause of suicide. They thought that they put way to much pressure on him and didn’t let him make his own decisions in life. All the boys went out and pursued their own dreams, and Tod became an English teacher at a public school. He kept in touch with Mr. Keating.
