The school, Whitefield Academy, sent an email alongside an image of Kayla's Facebook post to Kimberly on Monday, January 6, that Kayla's enrollment was terminated effective immediately because of a social media post.
The academy’s head of school, Bruce Jacobson, wrote: “The WA Administration has been made aware of a recent picture, posted on social media, which demonstrates a posture of morality and cultural acceptance contrary to that of Whitefield Academy’s beliefs.
"We made it clear that any further promotion, celebration or any other action and attitudes counter to Whitefield’s philosophy will not be tolerated.”
Reacting to the expulsion, Kimberly said: “Rainbows don’t mean you’re a certain gender or certain s3x or s3xuality."
Kimberly also said that she wants her daughter to be who she is, adding that Kayla is very individual.
She said: “I just want her to be true to who she is. She is very individual.”
