JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A mother taking a college exam said she was told to leave because she had her baby with her.

Rebecca Mabrey is enrolled in a virtual course at Florida State College in Jacksonville.

Earlier this month, Mabrey said she went to the school to take exams and was turned away.

Mabrey said she had no one to leave her baby with and was upset the school couldn't accommodate her.

"I don't think that it is fair. I think the college goes out of the way to accommodate students that have learning disabilities, handicaps," said Mabrey.

The college said infants are not allowed into exams because it has to maintain an environment conducive to learning.
