I can't write your essay for you but I can give you some help with this question. Mr. Keating is made a scapegoat for the school. This is an elite prep school for kids with very rich parents. A student suicide, like Neil's, is bad for the school's reputation. They need someone to blame. They certainly won't blame Neil's father who pays tuition. They build a largely overblown and fabricated case against Mr. Keating and force the boys sign documents attesting to the case's authenticity.
