una reunión para manifestar las razones por que se quiere suspender al estudiante


Explanation:
y permitir que el estudiante / su familia defienda su conducta o explique por que se opone al castigo de la suspension. En las escuelas de EU, hay mayor clemencia para estudiantes en los programas de la 'educacion especial' en casos de mala conducta. Esta es una explicacion mas logica de la frase 'manifestation meeting.'

  -> You are SO right, this should be queried, it is as wrong for us to assume this meaning as it would be to assume a protest march. Education is my field, though, so this is an 'educated' guess, based on my familiarity with the mentality and the jargon.
