School officials at a public elementary school in Chicago are ordering teachers to sign students up for “designated restroom times” when entire, overcrowded classes of little kids must use the bathroom each day.
The rationale for the draconian pee policy is to improve the school’s dreadful results on Common Core-related standardized tests.
An anonymous teacher at the unidentified pre-K-8 forwarded a memo concerning the policy to Anthony Cody of Education Week. The memo reportedly went out to all faculty members at the school last week.
“Welcome back and Happy New Year!” the memo reads. “In order to maximize student learning and reduce the loss of instructional time, we are implementing two new restroom policies.”
