PREPOSITIONS AND THE OBJECTIVE CASE
Common Stumbling Blocks - Peculiar Constructions - Misused Forms.
Don't forget that prepositions always take the objective case. Don't say
"Between you and I"; say "Between you and me"

forcibly ejected from the school" should be "He was refused admission to
the school and forcibly ejected from it."
