You keep going round and round dodging the issue.

They expelled her after a false accusation. That is not being expelled because she had one more offense after other offenses.

No

The mother claims "They expelled her after a false accusation. That is not being expelled because she had one more offense after other offenses."

He graduated from a public school high in his class.
Double edged sword, though. I was kicked out of A Catholic High school, and basically coasted till junior year from being so far ahead of public school. They do push harder for performance, IME.

Then again, they shot themselves in the foot by unwittingly disrupting a certain 'supply chain' for their championship athletes. They didn't do so well the next year.

Sometimes it's good to reflect on when it all went South.

The letter from the school indicates it was the photo that sealed her fate.

And specifically the school claims that it was a photo depicting supporting something the school doesn't support. The mother claims that cake wasn't meant to indicate support of gay rights. That's where the false accusation part comes in. There may also be some relation to "perceived sexuality" but details are even more short there.

I made a cake in those colours once.



Took a while to find a cake tin with the right capacity.
