A mother is feeling guilty after a heated exchange with a friend over their sons' acceptance into a charter high school that specializes in STEM. The friend, whose son did not gain admittance, asked the mother to transfer her son's spot to her own, citing that she lives in a less desirable school district. The mother refused, stating that her son was passionate about the school's focus and deserved the spot just as much. The conversation escalated in front of the friend's son, leaving the mother feeling remorseful for not removing herself from the situation. However, she stands by her belief that her son earned his spot fair and square. Read on to find out if she's the a**hole in this situation.
