    Yea, I wouldn't expect to see that in a 3rd world country, more less the US. Using bathroom privileges as a tool to teach children how to respect money? They'll grow up as the Port-A-Let Kings of the industry.

    Mixing it with other things is not a good idea, but I used to be part of a system where "passes" were distributed. In matters of age-appropriateness, the concept should be flexible, but the way it worked in upper division is they would have so many passes a quarter and once they used them up, they weren't supposed to claim restroom breaks unless it was an emergency. It largely worked.

    I'd like to know the teacher in question's credentials to decide what is an emergency and what isn't.

    When I got to High School, they started to monitor bathroom breaks for kids smoking in the stalls but that was the extent of it. Hell, we peed ourselves by accident in elementary not trying too.

    But for these adults to hold it out as a paid privilege to 6-10yr olds is absurd and wrong headed. All I knew about money at that age was if I did my chores and picked up some returnable bottles, I got enough change to buy some candy.

    By the time they're doing the pee pee dance, they probably won't make it to the bathroom.

    When students claim emergency, you tend to give the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise, you weigh their habits and try to instill the before class and after class restroom scheduling. In general, it's a common practice to have some sort of materials that essentially work as "passes" or in this case, money (usually not explicitly money) that are limited.

    A 7 year old doesn't know when he's about to have a medical emergency due to holding in his urine.

    You're not quite understanding the use of the word "emergency." Emergency is used to indicate that you are about to: urinate, defecate, vomit, etc.

    If people start asking you why the country is going down the drain just point them to the teachers, it starts from there.

    I very much understand the use of the word emergency.

    No, emergency means the 7 year old could be physically harmed by holding in his urine. There are many risks involved.
