Are you kidding me? The school has told the teacher to stop charging kids to go to the bathroom, but plans no disciplinary action. This kid has been humiliated in front of his friends and classmates. She needs an unpaid suspension and should be forced to make a public apology. Maybe make her wear urine soaked clothing for an entire school day? This is why I absolutely despise teachers unions. She needs to be punished, but her union will protect her. Totally disgusting.

I remember when I had to raise my hand and ask "Can I be human for a moment?" Society doesn't want people, they want robots so they created their education systems to produce just that. Unfortunately the programming usually goes awry, what else would you expect from a bunch of ill wired robots programming other robots?
I agree with you and it is going to just get worse.
They want to indoctrinate the kids early so they can work in this slave society. For some it works; for others it doesn't.
My online job that requires a professional license; they treat you like a robot.
If you go off script and the auditor takes points off; you can loose your job.
It doesn't matter how good you are clinically, just whether or not you stay on script ; if you deviate
this is bad and they reprimand employees for it.
They treat professionals like low grunts
It is a work at home job and this is what makes it appealing ;
this is it.
I watched as a preschool instructor at the public school told a little boy that he could not go to use the restrooms, not until the other kids return, she told him. He stood right in front of her holding the front of his pants, doing what I call the pee pee dance, until he couldn't it any longer. All the kids in the class began to laugh at him. He just stood there and cried. The teacher then sent him to the bathroom, as if that was going to help.
I spoke with the teacher afterwards and informed her that she was wrong for not allowing him to go use the restroom. She did not appear to agree with me, she voiced her opinion and then requested that I know longer assist in her class. So, I spoke with the school Principal, who felt she had done nothing wrong. I then phoned CPS and reported the incident.
While in first grade, my daughter and another girl had raised their hand to go use the restroom during gym class. The teacher told them both to put their hands down and keep quiet until she was through talking, Well, a few minutes later both my daughter and the other girl could hold it any longer. I got a call from the school nurse, who informed me that my daughter had had an accident.
After that incident, I instructed both my children to forget about the teacher and go use the restroom, that I would make sure their teacher did not penalize them for a potty break.
I honestly believe that some public schools are worse than prisons. They have no doors, toilet paper or soap in the bathrooms. The children can't pee when they need to, unless they want to be penalized. Only one recess a day.
If you think missing a bathroom break is bad, it is only the tip of the iceberg. Please click on the link below and do more research regarding problems within our public schools. These are not isolated incidences.
Note: The teacher in the story connected to the above link, did not lose his pension. Not to mention the fact that the school paid him $40,000 to resign. How pathetic..

I think they should make her come to work for a week in an adult diaper, no pants, and a t-shirt. Then, after that week, FIRE her, and make sure she never teaches again. What a horrible woman! Stories like this, and people still wonder why so many parents choose to school their own children. Here's one good reason!
I can't believe they don't fire her over this. I hope every single parent of a child in that class keeps them home till the school fires this woman.
The rookie teacher made a mistake in judgement. It was already stated that there would be some sort of administrative punishment. You want to burn her at the stake as well? The teaching profession, just like ANY OTHER PROFESSION IN THE WORLD has a learning curve dotted with trials and errors. Please, if you've made no mistakes in judgement in your entire life, I'd like to know your secret. I could learn a thing or two. A kid peed their pants. It happens all the time. 99% of the time it is because they ignore their biological functions until the last possible second. The other 1% is because the teacher is either inexperienced or stupid, or both. This teacher will learn through experience when the needed bathroom break is real or fake.
Go teach in an elementary classroom for a week, or even a month and see how every kid jumps on the "potty time bandwagon" when one kids asks to go. That's why I told them not to even ask me any more. I just tell them to go. That way, you don't have 18 kids "needing to go" at the same time (when it is announced that one has to go). The same goes for "drinks" from the water fountain, etc.
Was this a mistake in judgement? Yes. Is it grounds for her to be fired for her actions? Nope. Especially if she was a rookie teacher.
No, I am simply sick and tired of teachers getting away with things that would place parents in jail, or have them lose their children, or at the least face major legal issues.
Imagine a parent n a shopping mall with a young child. The child was taken the bathroom once, and demands to go again. The parents refuses, telling the kid they already went. This is repeated until the child wets themselves. Witnesses report this to the police, and the next thing you know, child protective people are in the picture, or maybe the parent is even arrested.
Same thing as the police being able to cuff an out-of-control child in school, but a parent doing the same thing would be jailed and lose custody.
You don't think she should be fired? Fine. Have her stand on a busy street, n an adult diaper and shirt, with a sign stating that she stupidly caused a student to wet his pants. Let her face similar humiliation to what she caused.
I am not naive about the situations, either. My sister taught first grade and kindergarten for a long time.
