    This is why my wife and I home school.

    I'd encourage any parent who's fed up with the public system to try it (quit your complaining and *do* something about it): There are cyber schools now you can sign up with (just like you'd enroll in a public school - takes minutes, and they'll walk you through it) that send you all the needed equipment (laptop, printer, supplies - some even reimburse you for your internet bill [I'm serious; ours does]) and all your lesson plans (if time or just plain 'how-to' is a concern), which makes it super streamlined, and easy for parents who don't have six to seven hours per day to devote to lesson planning and personal, hands-on teaching.

    I'd go so far as to suggest, for parents who both work, to arrange with a relative even to have them help you, if you can't be at home with them. Drop the kid off at grandma's and let grandma do the minimum supervision, or switch it up some days with grandma, some with an aunt or friend (or start a home school group with neighbors - options are literally unlimited except by your own 'woe is me' attitude). There are no bus schedules or start times to meet, remember - so you can drop your child off at grandma's or auntie's on your way to work, and pick him/her up whenever you get done.

    I'm disgusted by this story, but not at all surprised. You can dole out some of the blame to the teacher's poor judgement, but this dehumanizing idea of treating children like *prisoners* and requiring permission to go to the bathroom is written right into the source code of American public schooling, which was based largely on the Prussian Model ("kindergarten" literally means "garden of children.")

    If I was her dad I'd be in jail for "splattering her teacher" with the mess.
    In China they would call it "one flung poo"
