I’d heard rumors that some schools were not allowing students to use restrooms during some recent walkouts. Alas, its true – Worthington Elementary School in Inglewood placed students under a lockdown that only allowed them to relieve themselves in buckets placed behind their teacher’s desks.
Please, take a moment to absorb the situation. Because it sort of gets worse.
Principal Angie Marquez, who ordered this measure, claims she accidentally misread the school district handbook and imposed lockdown restrictions reserved for case of nuclear attack.
Shockingly, it even gets worse. The school district is defending him by saying that it was “an honest mistake” and that Principal Juarez was merely “following procedure.”
“The principal told us we had to use the bucket for the toilet because something bad was happening outside, but our teacher said no,” said Esmerelda Lopez, a fourth-grader.
