What Government Institutions Are Doing to Kids

New Jer­sey school puts lid on bath­room breaks
Under a new pol­i­cy at the Lawrence Mid­dle School, sev­enth- and eighth-graders are allowed to leave class for the bath­room a max­i­mum of 15 times a month. As a result, some are afraid to use up their bath­room pass­es too quick­ly and end up with a full blad­der and nowhere to go.

The Gene­va Con­ven­tion lists with­hold­ing toi­let priv­i­leges as a form of tor­ture. Police offi­cers are not per­mit­ted to with­hold toi­let priv­i­leges while inter­ro­gat­ing sus­pects. Sol­diers can’t do that to POWs. But the US gov­ern­ment can do it to kids. Oh yeah, the home of the free!

Put a lid on it: When schools can keep kids from bath­room, frus­tra­tion flows freely
Accord­ing to an Asso­ci­at­ed Press arti­cle, the school claims that going to the bath­room is a “priv­i­lege, not a right” and says the restric­tions are need­ed to guar­an­tee stu­dents’ safe­ty. A priv­i­lege? Since when? Watch­ing tele­vi­sion, play­ing video games and eat­ing can­dy are priv­i­leges giv­en to children—but going to the bathroom?

Okay—one more school out­rage. I’ll just add this instead of mak­ing a new post.
