A couple of months ago someone posted to protest faculty bathrooms being locked at one of the high schools. It brings to mind a quote from a recent book, Hand to Mouth:
"I've got my own metric to gauge the fabulosity of a job: ...am I allowed to go to the bathroom at will? It's physically uncomfortable to hold it forever, and it sucks to stand by for the okay like a dog waiting for someone to open the door. But for me, the indignity of the whole thing is less about the potential bladder infections. It's more what the requirement for that kind of notification reveals about the tone of the place. In my experience, the jobs where the boss regulates your urinary tract also tend to demand a bunch of other degrading stuff."
It is sad for teaching positions in our district to sink to this level.
