@ OldMarcoMan.. maybe you were a rich white kid, but most of the Marco kids attending Lely High School are not. I applaud Mr. Fairbanks, he did the right thing, and enforced a rule. Odd how 18 kids did not understand this rule? my senior understood it just fine.. perhaps if Lely would quit bending rules for the needy, they would not have thought that they were entitled to break the rules. So when the rules were enforced CORRECTLY.. they run to the newspaper crying? This story is laughable.. maybe they will be at graduation on time? This is a great lesson, but unfortunately it is not the norm, and many usually do have rules bent and feel entitled. We live on Marco, not the Manor.. and we would never rent our children a expensive rental car like a Cadillac Esaclade to show up at prom.. nor did my kid's entire dress (shoes, jewelry, etc.) cost more than $200 bucks. My kid would show up in the many years old and dinged up car they own, or they would not be attending. The rules are the rules, and I wish they were enforced more often, so that these kids do not feel entitled with the attitude that everyone needs to cater to them. I applaud Mr. Fairbanks, he is the greatest asset of Lely High School.
