A Christian preschool in Florida expelled a 4-year-old student after his mom complained about school administration in a Facebook post. Although her son had done nothing wrong, she apparently violated a policy against "sowing discord."
In the fairly tame post, Ashley Habat vented her frustrations with Callahan, Fla.'s Sonshine Christian Academy because she felt they hadn't given her enough notice about picture day.
"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?" she wrote, tagging the school.
Although Habat's son wasn't accused of any wrongdoing, she says Sonshine told her it didn't want him anymore because his mom "wasn't the right fit" with the school.
This is part of the letter she received from administration, WJXT Jacksonville reported:
"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 is shocked and outraged, WKMG reported, that the school would take its issues with a parent out on an innocent 4-year-old. She also says she didn't think the school would be able to see the post—even though she tagged it—because it was set to "friends only."
