But I gotta pee

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.

School officials defend the policy as a way to ensure safety, security and order.

Come on now. Who are the nitwits running this school? Is this country having
a common sense crisis? I'd like to see the staff follow the same policy. I'm sure
they'd be changing it real quick once one of them have a little accident. Safety,
security and order. Who comes up with this nonsense? The parents of these
students need to go down to the school and smack the principal in the head
a few times. Maybe that'll bring him back to reality.

Here's the rest of the story.
