    "Lake Gibson Senior High School- I have a child that is a Junior and it's his first year here. I have to say I do not care for the schools tactics. 2nd say of school was sent to ISS for no belt, yet pants fit at waist. Funny they call ISS "The learning Center" , but no work is allowed to be done. They have to just sit there. Helloooo they are not learning if they cannot do their work! On 2nd week of school his name tag was left in the locker room at the end of the day. The following morning he asked if he could get it, he was told no, had to go straight to the learning center where he had to wash trash cans, until a little bird told me what hapened. I went and got him from school! I told them I do not send him to school to learn custodian skills. Their concern was who alerted me this was happening. It is one thing if he is disruptive, but he is not. It is no wonder this county has such low graded schools."

    "This school is a joke I have a student in ESE I have tried to contact the teachers multipule times and they refuse to answer any emails. If she is absent they refuse to send her work home with her but then want to complain that she is not doing her assignments the school is rude and because of not wearing a belt my child again missed one of her classes I support the uniforms and my child dosent dress to wear it would cause disruption but to get a zero in her classes because of a belt and then wouldnt let her call me so I could bring her one. This school has no respect for parents let alone students and then you let the students run the office and they have no idea what the heck is going on I cant say how many times in the last three weeks my daughter has been told wrong because of a student in the office instead of the staff doing what they get paid for."

    "Everything about Lake Gibson has been messed up. For a majority of the school year last year it was clear the ONLY thing they were concerned with was how we were dressed. The ONLY thing that makes the dress code "Distracting" is how over dramatized it is by the office. We have to sit in a room for a whole class period instead of go to class and learn because we dont have our nametag, or a belt, or something simple like that. Yeah, real concerning for our education. I have looked almost desperately for knowlage on how to suceed in my high school carrier, and help with my grades, and found nothing. It's time Lake Gibson learns, it doesnt matter what we wear, really in the long run it doesnt matter. Thats mom and dads job, not the schools. its what we learn. And for the most part were not learning anything. I can list on one hand my classes ive had that were truely effective. Before we get any wheres we need to get our priority's in order."

    "For the PARENTS BELOW who are in Support of the UNIFORM POLICY, do you also support OBAMACARE??? WHY NOT??? you have no problem with UNIFORMS Being FORCED on your kids and them not having a CHOICE so why would it be any different for you?? Yes the teachers do have a lot on their plates and ALL are overworked and Underpaid. But the DRESS CODE Violaters do not take away as much time as you all are led to believe and frankly If the OFFICE and those paid in the 6 figures would put as much passion into ENFORCING The CURRENT DRESS Code as they do in FORCING A UNIFORM, there would be no complaints.!!!! Lastly, If the UNIFORM POLICY Included DENIM and was not so strict and VOTED ON BY THE PARENTS like yourselves and the rest of us, this whole issue would be a MUTE POINT. But these are HIGH SCHOOL KIDS Being treated like Pre-schoolers and also having their constitutional rights stripped away by the EDUCATORS who's job is to EDUCATE and the parents (SHAME ON YOU) who are willing to sacrifice their kids, but when the table is turned and issues are forced on them like OBAMACARE, than they have an issue. You can't have it both ways!!! Shame on you!!!!!"

    "I am a 17 year old student, currently attending Lake Gibson High School. I moved here in February, from Illinois. Although my time here has been brief, I have come across a lot of particular compaints. Coming from a town as small as where I'm from, to a big city like Lakeland, where I've been in the school for months and the teachers don't know my name, let alone others names, it gets disappointing. I never realized how hard my school pushed us until I got down here. A parent could walk in and be disappointed with the education children are getting. The teachers allow students to walk over them, cursing at them, not doing assignments, and being disrespectful. I have to contain myself from letting my jaw hit the floor. What baffles me the most is that the teacher will tell us to prepare for the day's lesson, and a few students complain, (back to the disrespect) the teacher will put in a movie. I'm talking movies as, "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" I hope as you read this, you keep in mind I am a student, noticing these awful happenings. I realize that my peers and I need to take responsibility and do the things that will help ourselves, our communities, and our futures."
