Question for Early Primary teachers
I'm a 1/2 teacher. In my opinion you can read the children and their body language - when they really need to go, or when they're just trying to avoid some work. It's true, once you let one go, you literally have at least 5 more asking to go. It is extremely disruptive.
I ask them to wait 5 minutes - usually the ones who need to go come back, and the ones who just want a free ticket out of the classroom don't. You can read body language too. If they're really busting, of course you'd let them go.
As for people heading straight to the education department, don't get me started. There are so many avenues for problem resolutions before this. Changing schools isn't the answer either. X

Last year (in kindy) my dd needed to go to the toilet. The rule is to put your hand up and wait for the teacher to tell you to go.
Her teacher ignored her and she wet herself.
She was so embarrassed and ended up having counselling over it- she became petrified of having another accident at school, and at one point stopped drinking water.
I spoke to the teacher and we came to an understanding where my daughter was allowed to go to the toilet whenever she needed without asking permission.
Imagine if an adult at work was denied a toilet break and made to wet themselves.
I'd speak to the teacher, then the principal before involving the det.
Big hugs to the child and parents!
