Simply put, CDA deals with language in social life (see e.g. Fairclough, , ; Wodak, ). 11 In their book titled European Spatial Planning and Territorial Cooperation, Stefanie Duhr, Claire Colomb and Vincent Nadin consider that a discourse analysis is a powerful tool for the spatial planners; given that the discourse is defined as an interactive process, it results from the analysis of a situation and it also seeks to exert.

This study used critical discourse analysis (Fairclough, ) to examine policy texts at distinct levels of schooling including: a) BC Ministry of Education policy texts, b) School Board texts, and c) School Codes of Conduct. The analysis of policy texts made visible the narrowing of a discourse of student, as well as an emphasis on suspension.
