My 10 year old son had to use the bathroom while he was left unattended in school.

Wow. I agree that this sounds out of line. It is one thing to offer a punishment but another altogether to have peers involved in the punishment process. I would go above the teacher as well and request a meeting with the principal. If she really thinks there is a genuine concern about him going to the bathroom without supervision, perhaps you could request that he be able to use the restroom in the nurses office? My son was having bully issues in the bathroom and was given permission to use the one in the nurse office and it helped. At least he'd have supervision there if she is concerned? Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Oh no! I don't feel this was appropriate punishment either.
I would talk to the principal about this.
