Summer Grant, a Ohio mother, is speaking out against Chapel Hill Christian School for kicking out her fourth grader, Summara-Rayn and her second grader, Summaia, despite being in good standing and with less than a month left in the school year, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Grant said that in July of last year, a conversation with John Wilson, a school administrator, quickly transistioned from her daughters' scholarships to the issue of their respective fathers, as he asked her questions like “how we can get your household to live biblically moral.”
Things escalated on April 17 when a school bus incident involving Summara led to a heated exchange between Grant and the driver. The following day, she received a call from Wilson, who informed her that her kids would no longer be allowed to attend the school, stating "bus incident just shed a light on many problems that we have with you."
Wilson delivered a statement to The Beacon Journal, saying "dismissal was necessary in order to protect the safety of our school children and their families." He asserts that parents sign an agreement when entering their children in the school, and acting "in a manner inconsistent with this written agreement" can lead to separation from the community. Grant claimed Wilson told her, though she hadn't married, she was committing adultery, which goes against the Ten Commandments.
In addition, parents are not required to be married in order to have children attend the school, though it is "strongly recommended."
“I never want to dismember a school or tear a school down or anything like that, but I don’t believe that this is right, and I feel like this man needs to know that he’s wrong," she said.
