One of my districts has the weirdest policy...it's even in the sub folders right on top...that subs MUST allow children to go to the bathroom any time they want even if it is excessive, & if it is excessive, just leave a note for the teacher! Now just the appearance of a substitute teacher creates weak bladders in at least 50% of the students to begin with...& this district expects subs to allow a never-ending parade of students in & out of the classroom? In this terrible 6th grade period I had the other day, I seriously think every single child in there went at least once & some of them twice, & they were having conniptions because I told them that since there was only one bathroom pass, then only one student could go at a time, & to make note of who had asked before them if they really wanted to go. This one girl was unbelievably disrespectful about it, carrying on with "You can't do that, you have to let people go to the bathroom whenever they want, what if they pee their pants, what if you make them get a kidney infection from holding it, their parents can sue you, you know, you're gonna get in trouble with the principal cause I'm gonna tell on you"....!!! OMG...would the administration prefer I allow a dozen kids to just run off to the bathroom in a group? Regardless of policy, I was not going to allow more than one student at a time to leave the room...that's just asking for trouble!
