A Florida mother claims that her 4-year-old son was expelled from a Christian school after she complained about its "ignorant" staff on Facebook.
Ashley Habat took her son to Sonshine Christian Academy, a private Christian preschool, for school picture day. Habat was running late and when she got to the school, she told an administrator that she thought parents were not given enough notice about picture day. After leaving Sonshine, she took to Facebook to air her frustrations.
"Why is it that every single day there is something new I dislike [sic] about Will's school? Are my standards really too high or are people working in the education field really just that ignorant? – at Sonshine Christian Academy," Habat wrote, thinking that her post was private. more >>
