Lee Central needs to work a little harder for their students, like it or this is our future and the way things are now there is not going to be a future really coming out of this school. Lee Central lost their backbone in October, I think, when Mr. Franklin pasted away the school started going down hill. You need to learn from what he was doing and that was having time for the kids. Staying on their level, but when he needed to be hard, he could do that and all the kids, thanked him for that. No, matter if you had family problems at home, he was there for you and always listened to the kids and the parents alike. Put somebody there that is going to do it like Mrs. D. Johnson, she will not play with them.

The school is ridiculous. You have to let the children tuck in their shirts and they look ridiculous. If they don't tuck in their shirts they get written up. The school wants people to stay in school but they are to busy writing people up for pitty things. Then the girls can't wear the shoes they want to wear, that's stupid. Lee Central needs to stop acting like their rich. They have lazy lunch ladies at that school also. Lee Central needs to step up and go back like it used to be.
