A discipulicide occurs when a school or teacher kills a student. Most discipulicides are discipulicides by proxy, where the actions of the school, the administrators, or the teachers drive a student to kill himself or other students.

The word describes the act itself, the perpetrator, or the victim.

It comes from the Latin roots discipuli, meaning "student", and cadare, meaning "to cut".
The student who killed himself after being suspended by a vice principal was a discipulicide.
