As students from neighboring secondary schools walked out of class recently to protest immigration legislation, one Inglewood [California] elementary school imposed a lockdown so severe that some students were barred from using the restroom. Instead, they used buckets placed in classroom corners or behind teachers’ desks.
Appalled by the school’s action, Worthington Elementary School parents have complained to the school board and plan to attend another board meeting next week.
Schools aren’t prisons. Officials who make them into prisons need to be fired. Making elementray school students pee in buckets because students elsewhere are walking out is bordering on deranged.
