Child Gets Expelled From School Over Mother’s Facebook Post
One mother in Florida is looking for a new school for her son after her Facebook post got the preschooler expelled.
The story out of Jacksonville, Fl was picked up by the local news and has people weighing in on both sides. Seems Ashley Habat recently complained about her son’s school, Sonshine Christian Academy, on her personal Facebook page that she stresses was a private post to her friends only. She felt their notice about picture day was lacking and ending up writing,
Why is it that every single day there is something new I dislike about Will’s School? Are my standards really too high or are people working in the education field really just that ignorant.”
Well Habat tagged the school in her angry post and they did indeed see what she claims was completely private.
The next morning she was asked to come to the office as she dropped her son off and there she was given a letter of dismissal that let her know her son would have to find another school.
Habat says she was shocked at the school’s reaction and felt it was unfair of them to punish her son for something she posted Facebook. Some people agree with her, saying she deserved a warning before such a harsh reaction. While others feel she got what she deserved and should have been smarter than to tag the school in an angry post.
So how do you feel? Think the school overreacted? Or do you think they were right to expel Habat’s son?
