A Brooklyn high school is catching flack for its treatment of students after it barred students from using all but one of the school’s restrooms.
Administrators at Brooklyn’s Science Skills Center High School said they locked all but one of the school’s bathrooms to punish kids for misbehaving.
“It was awful – and not just the smell or the line. It was the pee all over the place and the terrible plumbing,” one student told the New York Daily News about the school’s lone bathroom.
Principal Judy Henry did not return multiple calls for comment but told an Education Department spokeswoman that the single bathroom situation went on for only one day – a statement contradicted by interviews with two dozen students and two school workers.
