Facebook post gets student banned

A message to your kids about what they want to post on Facebook.

A Catholic school student has been banned from graduation ceremonies in the Philippines because a photo on her Facebook page shows her wearing a bikini while holding a cigarette and a liquor bottle.

The girl will graduate but has been told she cannot join her classmates in the ceremonies. Reports say school policies allegedly violated involve immorality, exposure online and smoking and drinking.

The country’s education department will investigate a complaint by the girl’s mother against the school to determine whether the penalty was appropriate. A ruling is expected before Friday’s graduation.

The girl’s lawyer says the picture was taken during a family outing. The school declined to comment.
