Four Year-Old Expelled Over His Mother’s Facebook Post [Video]
A four year-old boy was expelled from a Florida school because of a message that his mom posted on Facebook.
Ashley Habat and her son, Will, were running late for picture day at Sonshine Christian Academy in Callahan, FL.
“The administrator of the preschool checking him in, she’s like ‘Well, it’s picture day Will. Are you excited?’” said Habat. “You know he, of course, just went on to class, but I had mentioned that they didn’t give enough notice, and she’s like, ‘Well, we put it in his folder last week.’”
Frustrated, Habat when to Facebook to vent:
Why is that every single day, there is something new I dislikes about Will’s school? Are my standards really too high, or are people working in the education field really just that ignorant.
Although Habat said that her post was set as private, she tagged the school in it as well.
The school called her the next morning and asked her to stop by the campus.
“They just felt like we weren’t the right fit of parent relationship with the school and they didn’t want him as a student anymore,” Habat said. “He had done nothing wrong.”
According to the letter of dismissal, it says “Your relationship with Sonshine did not get off to a very good start the first day of school…you utilized social media to call into question not only the integrity, but the intelligence of our staff. These actions are also consistent with sowing discord, which is spoken of in the handbook you signed.”
Habat said she was in shock. “Why would you expel a 4-year-old over something his mom posts on her private Facebook page only people on her friend’s list can see?”
What do you think about the school’s course of action?
