The 6-year-old daughter of Lisa Skidmore (yes, that’s really her name) from Washburn was in a class where the teacher had given students an opportunity to use the bathroom before a testing period began. During that testing period, students were not allowed to leave the classroom.
While the test was in session, the little girl said she had to use the restroom but the teacher refused to excuse her. Unfortunately, she couldn’t hold it any longer and the girl pooped her pants.
Skidmore said when she picked up her daughter, she still was covered in excrement. Skidmore said the teacher didn’t excuse her daughter from the classroom, nor did she clean her up after the ensuing accident.
The little girl was forced to wait out the testing period and for her mother to come and pick her up. The teacher did provide the little girl with a plastic trash bag to wrap around herself.
“You don’t even treat a dog that way,” Skidmore said, clearly disgusted with the situation.
The little girl’s was quoted as saying, “If any parent sent their kid to school with crappy pants, those parents would be facing with criminal charges. I believe that with all my heart.”
Although the family isn’t pressing charges, they are seeking reform on the school’s part for when a child expresses an emergency bathroom situation. The superintendent of the school said that he disagreed with how the situation was handled and has expressed to teachers how incidents such as this should be dealt with in the future.
The school had been in the process of taking a state standardized test when the accident occurred.
Even though the testing didn’t apply to the children at the kindergarten level, the teacher was holding to the same strict testing guidelines in order to prepare the children for what they would need to face in the future.
