I don't remember going to the bathroom as a kid (college yes, as part of sprints between classes). I don't remember anyone else going either except it seems k there was always one girl that had to go every day. And I don't mean for girl reasons, I mean young girls back in early grade school.

Well dollface, when you have to change your tampon or pad every 2 hours for a week every month, it's kind of necessary to take more than 3 bathroom breaks per semester.

Insider has reached out to Dobie Junior High and the principal asking for further clarification on the bathroom policy and the reasons for limiting students' bathroom use. They did not immediately respond to the request for comment.


I always wonder about statements like that in articles.  "Well, we emailed them for comment. Then, I got up to grab a cup of coffee and ask my buddy how his weekend was.  Anyhow, whenever I got back to my desk from that like 5 minutes later there wasn't a reply, so whatevs. We'll just say they didn't respond and call it a day."

Can you sell yours?   I see a nice lesson in capitalism.  I could buy low from.other kids and sell high.  Maybe even register a few fake students just for their passes.

Fine. I will use the corner of the room
 
2022-09-24 8:34:22 PM  
Do it in a plastic bag. Leave in the front office. It's your duty to spread the Holy Turd, and I'd write letters to that fact for any student that gets in trouble.

Nationwide student bathroom strike.

Have all students shiat their pants or on the floor in class.  And have a go fund me to give free chipotle to any student who pledges to shiat their pants or on the floor of a classroom.

Keep the bathroom strike going until Biden EOs or Congress passes a law that there is unlimited bathroom time.  Or at least one second per second of school time.  We don't want the students going super luminal and causing paradoxes by going faster than causality.

Problem solved.

"But the policy in one of my kids' classrooms had an additional incentive for not using the bathroom at all: Kids who didn't leave class to use the bathroom all year were exempt from taking the final exam."

That is the dumbest thing I've seen in education since I've been alive.

They just go in there to whack their little puds to their phones and vape juuls. Can hear their phones out in the middle school hallway "ohhh step-mom, you feel so ugh older "

teachers have a lot of odd things they are forced to follow.

Meh, when we stop expecting our schools to contain educators and started expecting free babysitters, should we really be surprised.

Do parents not remind their kids to go to the bathroom before they get in the car anymore? Obviously, if one has some sort of medical problem, special dispensation should be arranged. Otherwise, do your business before or after class. An allotment of four special/class time trips per semester to the lav. ought to cover those taco bell lunches for most people.

It's not like they're in a class for four or five hours at a time.

They're in a class for an hour.  There is time in between classes.  Of course there are exceptions.

Also worth noting that under "Block Scheduling" (very common practice in schools, no idea on this one), you don't have 7-8 class changes a day like many of us olds did, you're often in one classroom for 120 minutes or more.

Anyway, it's trying to toughen them up for "the real world".  Of course, if you were really trying to teach the "real world", you'd choose a third the kids who can go literally whenever they want to (a lot of us IT types), a third who can, but the teacher will keep track and passive-aggressively threaten them with a performance review, and a third who just can't.  Also, irrespective of your category, the school resource officer stands a 1-in-10 chance of beating the shiat out of you in the hall for going.

Some schools in this area designate two times a day when bathrooms are unlocked and all classes on the hall may use the restroom. The justification is that the kids post video of themselves online smoking pot in the bathroom; that they fight in the bathroom; students ask to go to the restroom, but wander over to a different grade hall; and they put weird things in the toilet.

The architecture of schools is outdated and impractical. Every classroom should have a dedicated, single-occupant bathroom. Then, there would be no need for students to go into the hall to use the restroom. Fights in a single-occupant bathroom are unlikely. If something weird turns up in a toilet, a classroom full of people can identify the last person to use the restroom. Clouds of marijuana smoke are unlikely to go unnoticed. It would also drastically reduce the chances of a young lady being attacked in a restroom by an intruder that has slipped in - something that happened to the daughter of a friend in the 80's when a 30-something year old man entered a middle school and hid in the girls' restroom until a girl entered alone.

what i experienced growing up:
elementery school:
basically go whenever you need
jr high:
expected to go in between classes(which are 50min)  or at lunch and you get 7 min in between classes.
with maybe 1-3 classes in a whole week having at most one person asking to go
high school:
same thing as jr high.


basically this was a non issue for us as best as i can tell
no one was ever denied and no one was asking a lot anyway
no special counting rules or whatever micromanagement this crap is.

Could happen. My daughter was hustling ketchup packets for 10 cents when the HS cafeteria took out condiments. Took me a bit to figure out why she always had 10 or 15 bucks on her.

Yeah, but sometimes you have to pee during the day. Maybe even poop.

2022-09-24 8:57:43 PM  
I wonder what's it like to feel the onset of horrifying diarrhea and realize that you have no bathroom visits remaining for the semester and the class doesn't end for 45 minutes.  At that point, people can become pretty desperate.

Frequently three minutes between classes. Can't be late more than twice a semester. And a 20 minute lunch (line's 18 minutes long, so guess who doesn't get to eat). So, yeah, fark that noise.

Isn't that the point?
 
2022-09-24 9:01:30 PM  
I suspect the first time school lunch gives 50 or so people mild food poisoning, and half of the classes end up with diarrhea on the floor, they'll be re-thinking this policy.
 
2022-09-24 9:01:57 PM  
This will be an easily won lawsuit.

So, someone is tracking how many times children at school go to the bathroom.
Uh huh.

Bathrooms were frequently locked at my high school. So, you couldn't go between classes. One day a group of us stormed into the front office in a fit of rage and took turns barging past the secretary, through the principals' office, to use his private restroom. The following year, they implemented zero tolerance policies.

What? I always had to poop right before the bus showed up. And lunch always meant I'd have to go later before school finished. Wtf are taking?
