Restroom Privacy: No Exceptions, Full Accountability
My previous post from a few weeks ago was, sadly, right — even if a bit delayed.
Whitley County is limiting restroom breaks for students; they are backpack checking and restroom checking randomly; they are taking this stuff very seriously — a little TOO seriously.
They are allowing only a certain number of out-of-class breaks a trimester, and any students seen in the hallway after a bell rings for the next period “will be wrote up immediately if not seen with a hall pass” — a teacher source.
They are stationing teachers outside of all of the restrooms, and from what I have heard, are even GOING IN the restrooms — sometimes even of the opposite gender from which they are; they are acting like student teachers, too, and are asking kids — who otherwise would not be in trouble or doing anything to BE in trouble — for puffs. They are essentially coercing kids into doing something bad, then immediately apprehending them and making them the problem.
This is creepy; this is insane, stupid, and borderline an invasion of privacy.
MALE teachers should NOT be allowed in the GIRL’S bathroom, and vice versa. Period.
**This post is not directed towards any specific teacher or faculty member at Whitley County High School in particular, but more so just teachers in general who have conducted such inappropriate behaviors in or around the male/female student restrooms.**
