No, shame on you, Marci. You obviously have no clue what you are talking about which is exactly what the majority of the problem is with this situation and others in the county. People that know nothing or little about situations feel the need to comment on everything.
If you have never taught one day in a classroom, don't try to assume what it is like or the challenges that teachers face due to negligent parents and influences from home. If you have ever raised children, imagine raising 26 on your own for 180 days for more "wake" hours than their own parents have them. By the way, teachers spend 4 years receiving an EDUCATION (that means learning how to teach kids on subject matter, not how to teach and parent them because thats not done at home in many cases)because they CARE ABOUT KIDS....its certainly not for the paycheck! Trust me, no one would tolerate barely getting by, dragging home hours of work, and putting up with a lot of outside influences if they didn't care for the kids. Be careful who you judge! It is extremely unfair of you to be so critical!
On that note, children NEVER go to the restroom by themselves...sorry! But that is incorrect information. We have a buddy system in this county (that means 2 at a time) since an incident occurred in the restroom at WILLIAMS TOWNSHIP back in the late 1990s.
Teachers take the entire class to the restroom where students may go in one at a time...when students request to go to the restroom at a time that the whole class doesn't go, the teacher must send the kids in pairs...
The teacher did what was right...
Teachers can control the factors that are within their job, and their role as professionals...they cannot however control the behavior of other students when they are not in their presence.
If the teacher would have left the entire class unattended, she would have been held liable for any indcidents.
In other words...It was let the kid pee in his pants...quit teaching to take the kids back to the restroom and interupt more learning time because the kids had to go AGAIN...or leave the class unattended...I mean really...what more do y'all want?
Its amazing to me how this parent and everyone else is angry at the school and its employees because they were choosing to follow protocol...but no one is remotely upset with the parents and family from which this child committed such an act? Good grief people! Where are your priorities?
I would never subject my child to having to relive this event...if it even happened...every day just because I'm trying to prove a point. There's ways of taking care of what she wants to without subjecting him to being labeled for the rest of his life. The only person responsible for ruining this child's image and reputation are the ones who keep handling their business on Facebook and in the public eye! Is this about helping the kid or seeking to embarrass and hurt others? If this was about the kid it seems like his privacy, feelings, and future would be of upmost concern...not whether employees are going to be fired for doing their job. As a parent who is happy with my child's place at a school in the county school system...if you don't like the schools and your child's right to a public education...you haul 'em to the charter school everyday and provide all of their meals or pay your dues to send 'em to private school.
