CALLAHAN, Fla.-- A local mother is outraged after her son was expelled from preschool because of a Facebook post on her personal page.
Ashley Habat told News4Jax that she was upset because the school didn't give parents more time to get ready for picture day. Habat later posted her frustration about it on Facebook and the school told Habat that her son, Will, could no longer attend.
Habat said she doesn't regret expressing her opinion, which she said was posted to her private page for only her friends to see. Regardless, she told the station she doesn't believe her son should be punished for something she wrote.
Habat said she and her son were late for school on picture day at Sonshine Christian Academy in Callahan. She told an administrator checking in her son that she thought the school didn't give enough notice of picture day. The administrator said they put a note in Will's folder the week before.
She never expected the school to see her post, she said.
She tagged the school in the post, and the next morning, she received a call, asking her to stop by the office when she dropped her son off.
