IIRC, some schools in the U.S. tried doing something similar (restricting bathroom breaks). As you can imagine, it didn't work out too well.

When I was in 8th grade (30+ years ago) the bathroom pass was a used toilet seat. I think it only grossed out the girls.
 
2012-09-09 04:23:36 AM
If it was really a super learning opportunity, most kids would hold it.

The kids should organize a mass shiat-in.

That's easier said than done. It's easier for boy than girls to hold their urine, plus girls tend to need to go to the bathroom more often when they're on their period.

My schools always had restricted bathroom breaks.

Here's the thing though, as a student, I ALWAYS had to go. As a teacher, my kids are camels. I don't think I've had one bathroom break to deal with since April.

Good thing he didn't go to the R. Kelly school of music. A bathroom break there consists of getting peed on.

I peed in my seat in kindergarten because the teacher wouldn't let me go to the bathroom. Sometimes people need a reminder that their decisions have consequences.

That was in the 70's. I'm sure these days there would have been a lawsuit about it.

The fact she's such an attractive taskmaster is even more unexpected. I wouldn't surprised to learn that she's a former or practicing dominatrix as well....

Actually, I had a friend in high school for whom that was a highly effective way of getting as many bathroom breaks as she wanted. Turns out male teachers in particular aren't very comfortable with exchanges like
"Can I go to the bathroom?"
"Is it an emergency?"
"*shouts* I HAVE MY PERIOD, OKAY?!"

His face turned white as a sheet. Which really just added on to the multitude of things we made fun of that teacher for... still wasn't as bad as the fact that we all found out he broke his penis while farking another teacher's daughter.

/It's okay, he was a douchebag.

Also, no looking around, no smiling, and the penalty for a hug is death. That'll teach em.

Ditto. Age six, made to stand in the corner for some reason, asked Mrs Wells if I could use the bathroom 4 times as I was bursting. She said no, so I burst, all over the nice wooden flooring
 
2012-09-09 07:09:56 AM
No bathroom break? I'm enough of a caveman that step 2 would involve a corner. Then it'd make the news that I pissed in the classroom because I was denied a break.

Of course, I'd hold it until it wasn't a little dribble - I'd want to exceed at least a cup's worth(remember kid = smaller bladder).
 
2012-09-09 07:10:49 AM
Children should never be made to feel embarrassed over basic bodily functions. I firmly believe that this is the kind of shiat that help turns people into mass shooters and serial killers later.

I remember that. It was used to get out of gym classes, being late for classes, missing classes etc. If I was a teacher I'd start making a note every time someone used that excuse. A period every two weeks? No more bathroom breaks and extra gym classes for you. I'd also create a file in which I'd note how often grandmothers died.

The strict rules emerged after police were called on Thursday as eggs were thrown in protest at 40 kids being sent home for having the wrong shoes.

Bravo. At my HS, the principal banned shorts -- and the next day, most students wore shorts. When the kid who organized it was graduating, the principal tried to throw him out of the ceremony for wearing the wrong shoes. He borrowed shoes from an audience member, stayed, and said: "I spit my last breath at thee."


/KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!
 
2012-09-09 07:34:18 AM
1 bathroom break per 10 weeks. More than one is points off unless the student makes up the time during their free period. Amazing how many students don't really need to go. Amazing how the ones who really need to go think it's worth it too make up.
 
2012-09-09 07:35:34 AM

"Sure"

Head Charlotte Blencowe - who took over the school in the summer break - has also insisted they talk to teachers in class through HAND SIGNALS.


Does flipping the bird over there translate to the same thing?

Start making trucker bombs, and leave them on teachers desk as the class changes. Should be resolved rather quickly.

Our bathroom pass was a Unbreakable black toilet seat.

How many people like to slack off on an unnecessary toilet break?

I remember way back when in the 90s my school didnt allow bathroom breaks during class. If you had to go it was the 5 min between classes. I do see the point behind this you give a kid an inch and they take a million miles, but it probably will backfire.

In high school actually had one teacher use an empty box of Kotex as a bathroom pass. Reduced the "I have to go to the bathroom" quite a bit. Eventually, the school did not go for that...although we supported the teacher for doing it because he was good...and his class (Civics & Law) was really interesting...and we did not like douchebags interrupting for "gotta go pee"

I would love to see the 'teach tell a kid with IBS to "hold it until the break."
 
2012-09-09 08:04:18 AM
I was in 7th grade, and my last period class was on the other side of the Goddamn school. Didn't have time to pee. So I had to pee really bad oe day, and I asked the teacher, but he said no. So I said 'fark it' and went anyway. Got sent to the prinicpal's office. "Why did you leave the class when you were told no?" 'I really had to pee.' "Oh, well then go back to class."

Good to flush out the one who just want to get out, especially when the grades they get is the bottom line.

If you were in a meeting and the boss said this to you, would you and the other people in the meeting tolerate it? If not, why is it OK for kids?

The message here is very simple: "we're stopping you going to the bathroom because we think you'd rather be somewhere else than here", which is an indictment of education as a bureaucratic exercise (kid is in the class) rather than whether the kid is learning something or interested in what they're being told.

As I often say, 2/3rds of my senior school classes were a total waste of time. 1/3rd of my education was useful. 1/3rd I was incompetent at and 1/3rd I basically learnt by rote, regurgitated and never used again. Some kids in my class left with even less than that.

Bathroom break limits are unfair to kids who don't abuse the excuse. The human body doesn't work according to an arbitrary bathroom break limit.

Had one middle school teacher eho just hung the pass on a hook next to the door. His rule was 'don't even ask to go, just quietly leave and return when you need to'.

Treat kids like adults as well as remove AH/disruption opportunity.

Sure there are times when if you have to go, you have to go.
But let's be honest. You get many opportunities through out the day at school to hit the can. Needing to take breaks during a 50min class period, when you had chances to go can get out of hand if you let it.
 
2012-09-09 08:52:02 AM
Why the hell can't schoolchildren go to the toilet between classes? It's not as if the timetable comes as a complete surprise. In my six years at secondary school I never once had to go to the toilet during classes. Girls did occasionally (and always in pairs, for some reason) because apparently a process which happens regularly for three or four days every month takes them unawares every time. Or because they just fancied a skive, and maybe some hot girl-on-girl action in the toilets.
 
2012-09-09 08:53:18 AM
True story: My very first day of school in Grade Primary (the grade before Grade 1, at least in my school system), a kid asks to go to the bathroom and the teacher lets him. Five minutes later he walks back into the classroom with his pants and undies around his ankles and says "Can somebody wipe my bum?" We all laughed. The teacher took him out of the classroom. We never did find out if she wiped his ass or not.
 
2012-09-09 08:56:09 AM
Then they damn well better give you a proper break between classes, not six minutes to get from first floor biology to third floor Deutschklasse, with a stop on second to swap out your books. While bucking traffic of 100+ kids being little assholes along the way.

Not that I'm bitter or anything.

The irony is that some of the most learned people you'll ever meet are also some of the worst-dressed people you'll ever meet.

I teach in a middle school where the official school rule is "no use of bathrooms during class time." The reason is simple. If you allowed one kid to do something, you have to allow every kid to do so. If every kid went to the bathroom, there would be NO chance for the teacher to teach anything. Kids have tried this with me. I tell them "you can't leave the classroom unless you are about to or do throw up or you think you might be dying. The only exception is one that requires me to let any girl who whispers to me she has a "female" problem gets to go to the nurse of a tampon. I've had classes (I'm retired from real life and sub pretty much every day for the fun) where the minute the kids realize it's a sub as many as half the girls suddenly ask to go to the nurse. This went on until the word got out that I was a stand up comic and the class was not only going to be fun, they were going to learn something. I can usually tell right away if a kid is lying (was a single parent of two boys, I'm male, DOH) as there are certain things people do when they are lying; but it doesn't matter. If they ask, I have to let them go. It should be noted that if you check the grades of the kids that do this, they are either failing or close to it.

I don't care if they teach the full curriculum or not, I'm just wondering if it's adult actors, dancers, and musicians in training whining about the lack of bathroom breaks.

As someone who has suffered with chronic UTIs, fark this woman. Fark her long and hard. A fitting punishment for her would be a month of peeing shards of glass dipped in vinegar. She is a horrible person.

DownDaRiver: Sure there are times when if you have to go, you have to go.
But let's be honest. You get many opportunities through out the day at school to hit the can. .


No there really aren't. My kids get 3 minutes between classes, and aren't allowed to carry bookbags or backpacks so that usually involves a locker stop.
