An Ohio private school is denying re-enrollment to several students, alleging that their mothers breached part of their contract by leading a public campaign against the school’s purported attempt to “indoctrinate” students with left-wing ideas.
Columbus Academy (CA), which includes pre-K through 12th-grade students, effectively expelled two of Gross’ children and one of Gonzalez’s. But, according to the moms, their coalition includes hundreds of other CA parents who are also concerned about recent changes to school materials.
The mothers argue that CA was unjustly punishing their children for their parents’ activism. School officials, however, maintain that the two moms’ conduct blocked the type of “positive and constructive working relationship” they agreed to in the enrollment agreement they signed.
