Here is what needs to happen to this teacher. She should be fired, now. No administrative leave, no leave without pay, just fired and never allowed to teach again, or to be around children again. You cannot tell children who are 6 years old to go to the bathroom before a test and not expect at least a few to discover that they have to go once the test starts. The little girl probably, and I'm betting this is what happened, didn't even need to go until she started testing and the nerves got the best of her. Shame on this teacher and I'm using the word teacher because I cannot call her what I want to call her. And since these children don't do any actualy testing until grade 3, I think it was completely stupid and ill advised to give a class of kindergartners a test now that would in her words "equipped them with the ability to handle the stresses of this type of testing." Damn, the child couldn't even be expected to potty on demand, let alone master the nuances of taking standardized tests. This teacher, again, using the word in place of something else, needs to be handed her walking papers and if I were the parent of this child, I would be on the steps of the school and in touch with local media every single day until she leaves town.

Heck lady: have some compassion for the stress on the teacher - not just the emotional trauma the child was put through ! In my country they would tell her to take a paid loa until any public outcry subsided. Teachers cannot be fired for being idiots you know- at least in this country- and they are paid much more with far lr student ratios than in USA. Dont'cha know- Obama likely could not handle such stress !!!! Oh well- blame the children and the parents and the crows in the Roca jungle- NEVER a teacher- heck- 7 year old boys are seducing adult female teachers- more danger than a military confrontation in the middle east I think !!!

This is the reason I fired tnmtndude from the MaltaMon Academy for Boys in Philadelphia. He denied an 11 year old boy a bathroom break, and the boy wet his pants in class, and was spanked in front of the class. The boy was not only humiliated, but sent to my office. I took the boy to the gym change rooms, where we both undressed and showered together. I then dried the boy with a warm towel, and massaged ihles paste into his buttocks and groin so that the exposure to urine wouldn't provoke diaper rash. My assistant brought a fresh uniform for the boy, and I helped him dress.
The next day, at school assembly, tnmtndude was brought up in front of the school, and summarily relieved of his duties. He was made to undress, and held down by two senior boys, was spanked with his own classroom yardstick, which I then personally broke in half in front of him.
A squad of junior boys then escorted him from the building. His briefcase and clothes were spat upon by all the boys and thrown after him onto the sidewalk.
