    it is a stupid idea and this teacher should be punished for their actions.

    he should be made to drink a ton of water and then sit there and not allowed to go to the bathroom unless he can pay. the charge for him is 1000 dollars and he gets 1 dollar for every good thing he can think of and he isn't allowed to go to the bathroom.

    of course when he pee's his pants we can all laugh at him because he couldn't go in time.

    Alright, but you seem to have this concept that bathroom regulation in the classroom is this surprisingly new and tyrannical idea. It serves as a useful mechanism to instill a disciplined, scheduled restroom routine that still allows for emergencies to override it. You largely are able to keep 20+ students in their desk learning rather than up and about with recreational activities.
    D) Fiddley also said its a bad idea to mix a reward system with the bathroom pass. Which I whole heartedly agree.

    As far as the teacher goes, I probably wouldn't especially if they changed their restroom pass policy already. Even smart people do stupid things.

    Never let it be said that you're a partisan hack Arbo. I mean, it's not like you see politics in everything.

    fiddley is an idiot as well.

    I can see limiting use as they will be up all the time, but charging students to go to the bathroom is stupid.
    as i said we take kids away from parents for allowing them to run around in wet or dirty diapers. where is child protective services removing this teacher for letting kids wet themselves.

    what is worse is that it will get around school and then they will start being called names.
    this goes far beyond having wet pants.

If a teacher forbade him from using the rest room, he would have a medical emergency. Pretty simple.

    I agree with the others that some things shouldn't be chargeable, and I have an opinion that some things also shouldn't be dangerous.
    Jeezus!!

    It's more than ironic that right wingers like to make fun of the consideration of "self esteem" issues when it comes to rearing children but are now freaking out because some child wet their pants.

    When leveling an insult, it's often best to get the user name correct.

    I can see limiting use as they will be up all the time, but charging students to go to the bathroom is stupid.
    It's only charging by way of classroom currency or a limited number of classroom permissions. The error from the instructor was tying these permissions to rewards like pizza, candy, or popcorn. I would even be hesitant to tie it to bonus points or having it counted against classroom participation points (not that I would necessarily argue that that is inherently bad practice). This may, in fact, be reflected in a second pending review or what was discussed behind-the-scenes with administrator and instructor. The concept of limiting the number of non-emergency bathroom uses through a system is not tyrannical or abusive and is commonly practiced.

    Maybe I am younger than most people in here but I remember this being a balancing act for teachers when I was a kid. It can be very disruptive to have kids coming and going as they please. What has changed?

    This is very difficult for teachers to juggle with who is legit and who is not. I have two kids too. They will pull some sheningans. This sounds like a very sensible option to me. I don't recall ever being denied bathroom visits when I was a kid but I sure as hell didn't ask. I waited for the appropriate time.

    A UTI increases bladder function, although that can still be dealt with the system.

    When tied to a student with a 504 plan, which her child apparently has, the impact of the UTI may have a unique and more serious impact. If such an impact is noted and an accommodation is given, a teacher has to follow that accommodation by law.
