I don't know about Louisiana schools but I worked in the Los Angeles Unified School District for 7 years as a Custodian. Most Custodians don't clean well even though they are given a semester's course in Custodial Training at the District's expense. Some Custodians don't wash down fixtures in the restrooms. They merely wipe the sinks and toilets with the same damp rag and use a damp mop to mop the floor. The only thing that is accomplished is spreading the germs. If you walk into any restroom and it smells of urine, it has not been properly cleaned or cleaned at all. The disinfectants should kill the odors if properly applied.
Go to the schools and check out the restrooms, cafeteria and water foundations. Check out the condition of the desks and chairs. Look to see if the parts are clean.
The problem with filth in the classroom is: "There are no checks and balances when it comes to the building and equipment cleanliness. The biggest con is the outside grounds. The clean grounds you see when you go pass the school are misleading.
I have seen restrooms in kindergarten classes that smelled of urine.
Everyone should visit a school. Find out why little Johnny/Jetta has a runny nose all of the time or allergies act up more during school days.
In all fairness go to the school early in the morning to check out the facilities. When you drop off the children or before 9am. If the restrooms smell of urine you could go to the principal who will refer you to the plant Manager, who will or will not rectify the issue immediately.
Last but not least, visit the showers children use after P.E.. Again go early in the morning. Happy Germ Killing...

Since this is a public school, if you detect that scent of urine, would that be the union label we're supposed to look for?

And look at this from the first link. No wonder the custodians don't want to clean:

In a 1993 poll by USA Weekend, 43 percent of 65,000 public school students surveyed said they avoided restrooms for fear of being bullied, robbed, extorted or attacked.

This year, a string of school restroom crimes and tragedies made news:

This month, an 18-year-old student at a private school in Westampton, N.J., took a teacher's aide hostage in a restroom. He eventually surrendered to police.

A sixth-grader hanged herself from a restroom stall door last month at Cedar Park Middle School in Texas.

In Midvale, Utah, last month, a juvenile corrections officer at Hillcrest High School was stabbed in the leg after he walked into a restroom and interrupted a drug deal.

On Feb. 15, an 11-year-old pupil at Ellington School in Chicago was shot when a child playing with a gun in a nearby restroom fired through the classroom wall.

Classes were canceled at three schools in the Pittsburgh area this month after threatening notes were found in restrooms.

Some of these kids parents really need to put a leash on their dogs.

You do realize 1993 was 20 years ago and ALL the kids in school then have graduated...except teabagger kids.

When it comes to our childrens well being, we are willing to discuss the possibility of turning our schools into ARMED FORTRESSES to protect them from maniacs. Now on a whole different spectrum our kids are potential victims of custodial workers!? Well GOD BLESS AMERICA! Lets GET PARANOID.
