Did you see the article about the teacher on Long Island who has created a stir by giving her fifth grade students three bathroom passes a week? If they use them all

I teach in the high school setting and for many teachers it is a revolving student asks to use the restroom and as soon as that one returns, another is waiting to go. This goes on for the entire class (90 mins). It is very distracting. Some teachers have policies about not going during lecture, others during the first 10 mins and last 10 mins of class, etc. We all have a 28 min. study block where no students are allowed to leave the room for any reason.

I agree that the article lacks details. If there are set bathroom breaks in the schedule,
