A four year old was expelled from preschool. Not because his behavior was out of control, or even because he broek any rules. An innocent four-year-old was barred from attending a good Christian preschool because his mother said something the school didn’t like on Facebook.
“Why is that every single day, there is something new I dislikes about Will’s school? Are my standards really too high, or are people working in the education field really just that ignorant.”
As evidenced by the school’s actions, the mother’s standards are way too high, and educators of today are indeed ignorant. Granted the complaint did not in any way resemble constructive criticism, but then again its her Facebook wall and she’s got the right to both speak her mind and to let the school know how she feels about a practice, which she feels is … well … stupid.
Sonshine Christian Academy’s response is priceless.
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, which is spoken of in the handbook you signed.”
4-year-old expelled over his mother’s Facebook post – KFVS
So let me get this right. I’m supposed to go on and praise my child’s teachers, even when I feel that they are not making sense? I’m supposed to sign away my rights as a parent to have a voice in the practices of the school, to sensor my views on social media so that the school’s reputation is untarnished? And a clause regarding the sewing of discord is in a handbook that I signed so that my child may attend this establishment of lower learning?
Before I go to a dictionary to look up what sewing discord means, let me say what’s really on my mind. I’ll even say it in the language of a four year-old so that you’ll understand it. “Don’t be a poopy head!”
Your integrity didn’t’ get called into question until you did this shadey stuff. You punished a child for the actions of its mother, and above all you showed the world that the glare from your sunshine is hiding a pile of insecurity. Didnt’ the bible say something punishing the child for the sins of the parent. (Mark 3:28)
Go stand in the corner.
