Romans 12:19

Ashley Habat was frustrated at the preschool her son attended in Callahan, Fla. “Why is it that every single day there is something new I dislike about Will’s School?” she vented on her Facebook page, in a post restricted to friends only. “Are my standards really too high or are people working in the education field really just that ignorant.” But one of her friends printed out the private post and sent it to the taxpayer-supported Sonshine Christian Academy. The next day, her 4-year-old son was expelled. “You utilized social media to call into question not only the integrity but the intelligence of our staff,” the school wrote Habat in a “dismissal letter” they handed her the next day. “These actions are also consistent with sowing discord, which is spoken of in the handbook you signed.” Habat said she wishes they had talked to her before taking things out on her son. “He had done nothing wrong.” She said she didn’t mean to “sow discord,” but now that they took things out on her 4-year-old, the gloves are off. “My mom cried,” the boy said. “And I cried, too.” As for his mom, “I’m not playing,” she said. “They treated my son wrong, and they need to apologize for it.” The boy has been accepted at another preschool. (RC/WJXT Jacksonville) ...And every single day, she finds something new she likes about Will’s new school.
