Oh, Tiffany..... It was as I expected. It is your own child that you do not want to "babysit". How about if you looked at it as "parenting" since "babysitting" is what you do when you watch other peopleÂ´s children. Parenting is the term that one should use when it is their own child, which is the case here.
To answer your question: it is a fire hazard to lock all doors from the inside.
A majority of the doors are locked from the outside so that strangers can not get in. Only main entrances are open from the outside and are monitored to see who is coming in for the saftey of the students.
A school wants to work WITH parents to help the students. It is unfortunate when the school is more involved in the life of the student (and in the discipline of the student) than the childÂ´s own parent.
South Milwaukee has a great school system with professionals who care.... more
1) There are video cameras in the hallways that monitor what is happening.
2) In a previous post you wanted students to be able to get out of class to "use the bathroom" when they could use common sense and go to the bathroom before class starts or wait until the end of class.

4) Thus, your two posts contradict each other.
Furthermore, you are upset that students skip school but canÂ´t be troubled to help out for the common good by "babysitting". But want others to do the "babysitting" for you (probably of your children). ShouldnÂ´t parents be liable for their childÂ´s bad behavior? Also, do not tell me that it is the teacherÂ´s responsibility to babysit. Their degrees are in education AND their field of expertise and they are busy trying to educate your child.... more
Students are allowed to use the restrooms. DonÂ´t be ridiculous. Those who are denied to leave the room are probably troublesome students who have a history of being up to no good. Or they may be asked to wait it if they are taking a test, or some other circumstance where they need to wait. The exams do not last the entire 90 min so they should be able to finish and then use the bathroom.
Furthermore, if they used their passing time to go to the bathroom instead of talking to friends in the hallway, then when they get to class they wouldnÂ´t have to ask to use the bathroom. Students at this age need to learn responsibility, and if they canÂ´t figure out to use the restroom before class starts, they have issues.... more
