My kids are 12 and in jr high. They're telling that the teachers never let them use the restroom. They are given two paases each 6 weeks. And one teacher rewards students that do not use them by adding to their final grade at the end of the 6 weeks.
Okay, my son was told today, his grade could have been better last 6 weeks if he hadn't gone to the restroom. Help me understand this?
They have 5 minutes between classes often to from building to building.
And what about girls - my daughter has started her mensteral cycle and should be allowed to use the restroom.
Does anyone else have an issue with this?
My kids are good kids, in andvanced classes and make good grades.
Absolutely! I hate that some teachers have made what is a basic human function off limits! I would be talking to the teachers ASAP & if that doesn't get you anywhere, go to the principal. Still not satisfied, then go above him to the board of education. As But Mommie said, unless they are abusing the "privilege" let them use the damn bathroom for Pete's sake!
