facebook expolsion

(WTNH)– A Florida mom says her four-year-old son was expelled from his pre-school over a message she posted on her personal Facebook.

Ashley Habat says she and her son Will were running late for school. It was picture day at Sonshine Christian Academy and Habat was frustrated that she wasn’t give enough notice. So Habat says she took to Facebook, saying she just wanted to vent her frustrations. She also never thought the school would ever see her post.

The post read “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 the education field really just that ignorant.” She tagged the school in the post.

The next morning she received a call asking her to stop by when she drops off her son to then tell her he was expelled.

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 with is spoken of in the handbook you signed.”
