DALLAS -- Students at South Oak Cliff High School are voicing their complaints about their school's conditions, including a rampant rat problem and stiflingly hot classrooms.
On Monday, students posted on Twitter a video of a rat seen in the corner of a classroom. The video was posted on a Twitter account run by current and former students of the high school.
